The Soviet Union may contract for further purchases of US grain this year. Various Soviet officials, speaking privately, have hinted at such a move despite sizable grain deals in recent months with Argentina, Canada, and Brazil. Foreign diplomats and commercial sources in Moscow say, however, that the Soviets have not formally signaled a desire to buy.
