Chinese purchases of U.S. agriculture products fell sharply last year as the country retaliated against Washington's imposition of tariffs on steels and metals.

China's announcement that it will stop buying U.S. farm products is yet another setback for farmers already weary of a trade war that's dragged on for more than a year.

"We need to find an end to this very soon, because it's not sustainable for us much longer," Darin Johnson, a corn and soybean farmer near Wells, Minn., said after the news Tuesday.
