LONDON (ICIS news)--Indian fertilizer producer and importer Gujarat Narmada Valley Fertilizers Co (GNFC) has announced a tender for 50,000 tonnes of phosphate fertilizers, Indian trader sources confirmed on Monday.


The tender, for diammonium phosphate (DAP), called for delivery in one or two cargoes.


If sellers offered one lot, GNFC declared a preference for delivery to Mundra based on a discharge rate of 10,000 tonnes/day.


If two lots were offered, GNFC wanted delivery to Rozi based on 4,000 tonnes/day discharge.


The tender closes on 15 July, with offers valid to 19 July.


India has so far imported 3.5m tonnes of DAP for the 2008-09 season, with expectations that total imports could reach 4m tonnes due to good rains and slow domestic DAP production.
