The Soviet Union canceled another wheat order.

The cancellation of the 200,000 metric tons of U.S. hard red winter wheat was the second such cancellation in nine days, the Agriculture Department said. On Jan. 17, the department announced a cancellation of 100,000 metric tons. Both sales had been scheduled for delivery by May 30 under the second year of a long-term grain sales agreement between the two countries. No reason for the cancellation was disclosed in the announcement.
