Although the Chinese government's anti-dumping investigation has caused an unexpected blow to Australia's Valley Property, at least since July this year, the issue of pesticide residues has been lingering in the minds of Australian food exporters CBH. CBH is concerned that glyphosate residues in exported barley are the biggest trade threat and could lead to a disruption in the billion-dollar barley trade.
CBH is Australia's largest grain exporter, with 2017 revenues of A $ 3.47 billion and profits of A $ 247 million. In barley harvested in 2017/18, CBH detected glyphosate in 56% of samples. In the Australian Department of Agriculture's national testing, glyphosate-containing barley samples accounted for 77%, up from 60% in 2016/17. As farmers become more inclined to use glyphosate to handle mature forage barley crops, CBH is looking for ways to protect trade relations with China. At a press conference before the barley harvest, CBH said that it has a responsibility to maintain the export market, but it does not believe it can do so under the current circumstances. To this end, CBH chose to ban the export of glyphosate-treated feed barley to China.
