Domestic liquid ammonia supply pressure still exists, especially the regional imbalance, which leads to greater supply pressure in some regions. In terms of demand, the peak season of downstream fertilizer demand is no longer, the upstream liquid ammonia market price rises slightly, and the market price trend of ammonium nitrate rises slightly.
