SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Kailin Group has been running its 2.64m tonne/year diammonium phosphate (DAP) plant in Guizhou province at half its capacity since 16 May as maintenance works are being conducted, a company source said on Thursday.

“The company plans to resume [to full production] on May 28,” the source said.

Kailin Group is the second biggest DAP producer in China.

But China’s domestic demand for DAP is currently weak. Spot prices of 64% DAP were assessed at CNY3,150-3,240/tonne ($498-512/tonne) in China's southwest market on 23 May, down by CNY20-30/tonne from a month ago, according to Chemease, an ICIS service in China.
