"This barley decision is bad for Australian farmers, but it's also bad for Chinese breweries and other customers of Australian barley in China who will end up paying more for product or getting substandard product from around the world", Birmingham said in an interview with Channel 7.
However, trade minister Simon Birmingham said Australia would not retaliate against China, the country's biggest trading partner.
The stress come as Australia attracts up strategies to take China to the global profession umpire intending to terminate high brand-new tolls on barley imports- although Canberra will certainly initially attempt to look for a polite resolution.
China imported 2.5 million tonnes of Australian barley last financial year, more than 50 per cent of Australia's barley exports, with the next-biggest importer - Japan - buying less than 800,000 tonnes.
"By following the steps of some United States hawks who harshly attack China over coronavirus, 'it seems that Australia, this giant kangaroo that serves as a dog of the USA, will hit a deadlock with China on trade disputes in sectors like coal and beef". "We operate according to the trade rules that we strongly support".
Beijing's trade actions against Australia are taking place amid a diplomatic dispute over Canberra's strong push for an independent probe into the origins of the novel coronavirus pandemic, which was first detected a year ago in central China.
He says China has been investigating Australian barley for 18 months, but Australia's call for a coronavirus inquiry "didn't help".
Barley producers are also deeply disappointed by the decision and rejected China's claims of dumping. "If Australia is willing to change its course and give up the political manipulation of the pandemic, we will welcome that".
The report also predicted that state media could also encourage consumer boycotts of popular Australian brands.

And it's a bit early to say with certainty that these antibodies will protect the study's participants against the coronavirus . Vials of the company's mRNA-1273 vaccine were shipped to HHS in February, and the vaccine was tested on humans in March.
Australia's farming preacher, David Littleproud, claimed the federal government would certainly push Chinese authorities to terminate the tolls, as the World Trade Organization's procedures needed 60 days of reciprocal examinations prior to a disagreement was started.
"I think there are occasions when we do need to assert our independence, and I made it clear when I was asked should there be an inquiry into the pandemic, I took the view, yes, there should be, but I don't think in the sense that we should be vilifying any particular nation".
"You'd have to expect that the importers would take the message onboard that Australia isn't a friendly country", he said, suggesting Chinese industries would begin diversifying their reliance on Australian goods.
Mr Hunt said those capabilities would be crucial to detect the source and transmission of diseases early on. China has repeatedly said now is not the time for such an investigation, especially one that could look into allegations that it for suppressed information and bungled its response to the initial outbreak.
"This resolution will represent a transformative moment in global disease detection and discovery", he told reporters in Melbourne.
Australia has also raised concerns today over "unacceptable malicious cyber activity" by an unnamed country believed to be exploiting the pandemic, but stressed the activity was "outside of Australia".
"Two-thirds of Australia's farm production is exported".
"Countries have agreed at the United Nations that existing global law applies in cyberspace".
While the statement does not name China, it is widely seen as being aimed at the Communist regime.
