It also makes golf courses green.
You can make explosives with ammonium nitrate. It can replace bat droppings as a source of nitrates that can when properly manufactured, be used for demolitions or as a propellant.
What ammonium nitrate can’t do, even if used as a component in the manufacture of highly complex compounds using certain metals and hydrocarbons, is explode down into bedrock.
That requires considerable professional engineering expertise or the use of weapons such as a nuclear bunker-buster bomb. The Beirut crater has an analog in the American state of New Mexico. That crater was caused by a two-megaton hydrogen bomb test.
