Poles see good grain harvest, with relief for import bills

Poland expects its 1984 grain harvest to be one of the best since World War II and is hoping to save scarce hard-currency reserves by cutting agricultural imports, official newspapers said Wednesday. Last year's yield was 22.1 million tons, and Poland had to import about 5 million tons of wheat, corn, and oilseeds.

In Washington, meanwhile, President Reagan yesterday offered to sell the Soviet Union an additional 10 million metric tons of American grain in fiscal 1985, which begins Oct. 1. Under a five-year pact, the US has already agreed to let the Soviet Union buy up to 12 million tons in fiscal 1985.
