DAP (Diammonium Phosphate) fertilizer with a chemical formula (NH4) of 2HPO4 is a fertilizer with two nutrients. Contains 18% Nitrogen (N) 18% Ammonium Nitrogen 46% The color of diammonium phosphate (DAP) manure with phosphorus (P2O5) varies according to the acid used in the production. It is usually black, dark gray or dirty white. It is compatible with alkali chemicals due to the conversion of ammonium ions into ammonia when Ph is high.
Production and Reactions
It can be produced in the granulation phase by reaction of ammonia with phosphoric acid.
