HOUSTON (ICIS)--US diammonium phosphate (DAP) exports in March were down by 43% 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 284,018 tonnes in March from 497,625 in March 2012. Exports were down in March mainly because of reduced demand from Mexico.

Thailand at 82,405 tonnes was the major destination of US DAP exports, followed by Brazil at 58,403 tonnes and Mexico at 29,147 tonnes.

Other destinations included Australia, Argentina and Honduras.
