China will impose anti-dumping tariffs of up to 73.6 percent on barley imported from Australia for five years, effective Tuesday, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) said on Monday.

A Chinese investigation determined that Australian exporters were dumping barley in China and did material damage to the domestic barley industry, according to a statement on the ministry's website.

As a result, shipments by Australian companies - including Kalgan Nominees Pty Ltd, JW & JI Mcdonald & Sons and Haycroft Enterprises - will face tariffs of 73.6 percent.

The ministry decided to launch anti-dumping investigations into barley from Australia in November 2018.
