HOUSTON (ICIS)—US diammonium phosphate (DAP) exports in February were down by 23% from the same month a year earlier, according to data made available by the US International Trade Commission (ITC) on Monday.

US DAP exports declined to 293,777 tonnes in February from 321,057 in February 2012. Exports were down in February mainly because of reduced demand from Mexico and Colombia.

Australia at 53,448 tonnes was the major destination of US DAP exports, followed by Argentina at 40,463 tonnes and Brazil at 34,003 tonnes.

Other destinations included Uruguay, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela.
