DAP - Di Ammonium Phosphate

DAP is the abbreviation for di-ammonium phosphate, a widely used fertiliser that is manufactured overseas and imported into New Zealand.

DAP is made by reacting phosphoric acid with ammonia under controlled conditions. The resulting material is granulated and sieved to produce a consistent product that has many applications in pastoral and arable farming.
