The move comes in retaliation for 25% in import tariffs also on $50billion worth of Chinese goods delivered into the US.

The first wave of tariffs on $34 billion worth of US goods will takeeffect on July 6 and will include US origin soybeans. The second wave of 25%import tariffs, on the remaining $16 billion, will be announced at a laterstage.

The US is the second-largest supplier of soybeans into China, afterBrazil, with a 39.4% share, or 36.8 million mt exported in the 2016-17marketing year.
