Urea 46 is an organic amide molecule containing 46% nitrogen in the form of amine groups. This is infinitely soluble in water and is suitable for use as an agricultural and forestry fertilizer. Also it is useful for industrial applications which require a high quality nitrogen source. It is used in many ways to provide N nutrition for plant growth. It is most commonly mixed with soil or applied to the soil surface.
Due to the high solubility, it may be dissolved in water and applied to soil as a fluid, added with irrigation water, or sprayed onto plant foliage. It is a source of Nitrogen, an essential nutrient crucial for crop growth and development. Urea is the most important nitrogenous fertilizer in the country because of its high N content (46%N). It also has industrial applications such as the production of plastics and as a nutritional supplement for cattle.
This fertilizer is a stable, organic fertilizer that can improve the quality of your soil, provide nitrogen to your plants, and increase the yield of your crops. You can usually get it in dry, granular form. There are several benefits to using urea as a fertilizer.
On fields with a good stand of a responsive species, apply 90 to 100 pounds per acre of actual nitrogen, equal to about 200 pounds of urea or 300 pounds of urea ammonium nitrate (UAN)
Urea has the highest nitrogen content of all solid nitrogenous fertilizers in common use. More than 90% of world industrial production of urea is destined for use as a nitrogen-release fertilizer. Urea is made up of 46% nitrogen and is more widely available than calcium ammonium nitrate (CAN) internationally
