NEW DELHI, March 7 (Bernama) -- Construction work on a large Jordanian fertilizer plant that will supply its output to India is expected to start next year.
The plant, to be set up in Ma'an, 220 km south of Jordan's capital city Amman, will have a capacity of 600,000 tonnes per year, a person familiar with the Jordan-India agreement for the project told Bernama.

India will buy the facility's entire output of phosphoric acid, DAP and NPK fertilizers on a long-term basis.
