What are the main uses for ammonium nitrate?
I was just curious why a country that isn't known for producing anything has enough laying around to cause that much damage.

Primarily as a high nitrogen fertilizer. Also used as the oxidizer in ANCP - Ammonium Nitrate Composite Propellant - a solid rocket fuel.

Fertiliser By most of the Intelligent world but as part of an explosive Mix for Terrorists and Stump removers

Fertilizer and as an explosive..
This explosion may have been set off by fireworks. Apparently this ammonium nitrate had been stored there since 2014.

It is used as an additive in fertilizer. Also you probably just triggered the NSA computers asking about it because I'm sure that you also know what it is for. So if you see something strange, like a few big black SUVs parked on your block. You'll know why.
