HOUSTON (ICIS)--US diammonium phosphate (DAP) exports in September 2013 decreased by 49% from the same month a year earlier, according to data made available by the US International Trade Commission (ITC) on Tuesday.

US DAP exports decreased to 138,776 tonnes in September from 271,376 tonnes in September 2012. Exports declined in September mainly because of less demand from India.

September exports were reduced from the 321,315 tonnes in August 2013.

India at 43,394 tonnes was the major destination of US DAP exports, followed by Japan at 34,316 and Brazil at 28,210.

Other destinations included Mexico, Uruguay and Venezuela.
