China hits U.S. sorghum

China has started an anti-dumping and subsidies investigation into sorghum imports from the United States, claiming they are priced below the cost of production.

The Chinese move some after the U.S. said in January that it will be imposing a 30 per cent tariff on Chinese solar panels.

According to the U.S. Grains Council, more than three-quarters of sorghum grown in the U.S. is exported China.

Last year it was 4.8 million tons (Imperial measure) priced at $1 billion US.
