BEIJING, Oct 23 (Reuters) - China’s imports of sorghum in September fell 76.9 percent from the year before to 90,000 tonnes, customs data showed on Tuesday, hit by steep Chinese tariffs on imports of the grain from the United States.

Corn imports for the month came to 40,000 tonnes, down 83.4 percent on-year and the lowest volumes since November 2016, the data also showed.

Barley imports fell 27.1 percent to 680,000 tonnes. (Reporting by Dominique Patton and Hallie Gu Editing by Joseph Radford)
