UREA

Urea is the most important nitrogenous fertilizer in the country because of its high N content (46%N). Besides its use in the crops, it is used as a cattle feed supplement to replace a part of protein requirements. It has also numerous industrial uses notably for the production of plastics. Presently all the Urea manufactured in the country is Neen coated.

    Application

  • Store separately from ammonium nitrate.
  • Don’t use small, fast-moving augers to move the Urea.
  • Don’t exceed a spreading width of 50 feet when urea is applied.
  • Don’t place urea in direct contact with corn seed.
  • Keep rates of nitrogen applied together with small grain in the drill to 10 pounds on dry soils and 20 pounds when soil is moist.
  • Apply urea on sod crops when atmosphere temperature is below 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • When broadcasting urea on soils of high pH (above 7.5), incorporate the material into the soil as soon as possible.

    Advantages

  • You can apply urea to the soil as a solid, solution or, for certain crops, a foliar spray.
  • Usage involves little or no fire or explosion hazard.
  • Urea’s high analysis – 46 percent N – helps reduce handling, storage, and transportation costs over other dry N forms.
  • Urea manufacturing releases few pollutants to the environment.
  • When properly applied, it results in crop yield increases equal to other forms of nitrogen.
