China barley anti-dumping update

China’s anti-dumping investigation against the Australian barley industry is continuing and the potential outcomes remain uncertain.

The investigation commenced on 19 November 2018, with the final decision due prior to 19 November 2019.  The Chinese Government can extend the investigation deadline for 6 months to 19 May 2020.

This uncertainty may have an ongoing impact on barley values while the investigation progresses, and Australian growers should be aware of the market risk.

GrainGrowers is working with other industry bodies and the Federal Government to closely monitor this matter and ensure Australian growers are well represented
