Urea is a synthetic nitrogen fertilizer that can be used as a soil amendment to promote plant growth and increase crop yields. It is a white crystalline substance that contains approximately 46% nitrogen, which is essential for plant growth and development.
One of the main benefits of using urea as a soil amendment is that it can quickly and efficiently increase the nitrogen content of the soil. Nitrogen is a key component of chlorophyll, which is responsible for photosynthesis and plant growth. Urea can help boost plant growth and increase crop yields by providing a readily available source of nitrogen to the soil.
Urea can be applied to garden beds in several ways. It can be spread directly onto the soil using a spreader, or it can be mixed with water to create a liquid fertilizer that can be applied as a foliar spray. When using urea, it is important to follow the recommended application rates to avoid over-fertilizing and potentially damaging plants.
However, overuse of urea can lead to negative impacts on soil health and the environment. Excessive nitrogen can lead to soil acidification, water pollution, and increased greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, it is important to use urea sparingly and in conjunction with other soil amendments to maintain soil health and minimize environmental impacts.
Our Urea is in a prilled form. The granules are between the size of a BB and a sweet pea. Prilled urea is much easier to handle and is much easier to store compared to powdered urea.
