*Ministry of Commerce investigates U.S. sorghum exports to China

*Says it has evidence showing subsidies damage domestic growers’ interests

Beijing has initiated anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigations into U.S. sorghum exports to China, saying they are unfairly hurting the domestic industry.

In two separate statements released Sunday — one announcing the dumping investigation and another regarding subsidies — China’s Ministry of Commerce said that it had not received any written filings requesting the investigations, but that it still believed that “preliminary evidence” revealed unfair practices.
