LONDON (ICIS news)--US-based Phosphate Chemicals Export Association (PhosChem) will supply 1m tonnes of diammonium phosphate (DAP) fertilizer to a key Indian customer during the next 13 months, the company said on Monday.
Under the terms of this new contract, the price will be indexed to market pricing, the first time this type of arrangement had been agreed with Indian buyers.
The indexing agreement was put in place to take account of rapidly rising DAP prices in the international spot market. US producers would be unwilling to lock in such a sizeable contract at fixed prices.
Shipments will occur from March 2008 through March 2009.
