HOUSTON (ICIS)--US diammonium phosphate (DAP) exports in January were down by almost 37% from the same month a year earlier, according to data made available on Friday by the US International Trade Commission (ITC).

US DAP exports declined to 227,405 tonnes in January from 359,610 in January 2012. Exports were down in January mainly because of reduced demand from El Salvador and Australia.

China at 45,900 tonnes was the major destination of US DAP exports, followed by Peru at 31,977 tonnes and Guatemala at 25,141 tonnes.

Other destinations included El Salvador, Costa Rica, Canada, Mexico and Japan.
