LONDON (ICIS news)--The Indian Farmers Fertilizer Cooperative (IFFCO) has restarted the Paradeep fertilizer plant after phosphate rock supplies resumed, sources at the company confirmed on Thursday.

The plant, which produces diammonium phosphate (DAP) fertilizer, restarted on 23 January following a five-six-day stoppage due to delays in shipments of phosphate rock, a raw material required in the manufacture of phosphate fertilizers.

Production was now running normally, the source added.

The IFFCO Paradeep plant has the capacity to produce 2m tonnes/year of DAP and other blended phosphate fertilizers.
