The department said imports during March exceeded exports by $171.3 million. This compared with a surplus of $213 million in February. The country's trade still is in surplus for the year by $685.6 million. The March deficit was attributed almost entirely to a 17 per cent increase in the cost of imports of foreign oil. This reflects the sharply higher price tag imposed by the oil-producing nations. Administration economists have predicted that the higher cost of foreign oil will offset the nation's otherwise encouraging trading position and bring about a trade deficit this year. • Legislature (Continued From Page 1) now goes back to the Senate for action on the amendments.

Board of Trade CHICAGO ( AP) Profit-taking sent most farm commodity futures on the Chicago Board of Trade into retreat today. Opening figures in the major pits were strong, as had been expected after Thursday's limit advances.

Limits in the soybean oil pit again reverted to 100 points and the rise totaled 95 points after the opening.

WASHINGTON (AP)-Reports of planting troubles in the Soviet Union this spring are not cause for concluding that Russia soon may be on the prowl again for huge quantities of U.S. grain, according to Agriculture Department experts. The Soviet press charged this week that bad weather and inefficiency on the farms had caused delays in planting grain crop for harvest later this year. Roger S. Euler, who specializes in Communist-area agriculture for the department's Economic Research Service, said the reports were not particularly alarming. Given a break in the weather, Soviet farmers still could catch up, he said.
