The Soviet Union bought more U.S. corn.

The 200,000 metric tons of corn--about 7.9 million bushels--is for delivery through Sept. 30, the Agriculture Department said. Moscow resumed buying U.S. grain last month with the purchase of 1 million tons of corn, the first since last June. Officials said the sales were reported to the USDA by private exporters as required by law. No prices or other details were disclosed. But the latest sales have an estimated farm value of about $12 million.
