    China has been very busy during the pandemic crisis globally.

    China just slapped an 80% tariff on Australian barley, and opened themselves up to US barley. All they are doing is messing around farmers and pissing everyone off in the end. Next week they will do something else to piss off the Americans.

    As a result, it seems Japan and Middle East will step up and purchase more Australian barley and less US barley. Not sure if this will take up all the slack but the basic laws of supply and demand should ultimately sort out this mess.

    Australia has spent a lot of time and effort over the last few decades forging partnerships with the Chinese. But fuck it, if this is how we are treated then we are already talking about moving our efforts to other countries such as India and Indonesia now. So China, just stop being a bunch of dickheads please.
