HOUSTON (ICIS)—US diammonium phosphate (DAP) exports in April 2013 were down 38% from the same month a year earlier, according to data made available by the US International Trade Commission (ITC) on Friday.

US DAP exports declined to 227,499 tonnes in April from 369,366 tonnes in April 2012. Exports were down in April mainly because of reduced demand from Argentina.

April exports were decreased from 284,018 tonnes in March 2013.

Brazil at 100,292 tonnes was the major destination of US DAP exports, followed by Mexico at 28,998 and Japan at 27,196.
