Agriculture Urea


Agricultural urea, which is either coated with sulfur or zinc, has been widely used by farmers all over the world because it is regarded as the best source of nitrogen for crops and plants. It can remain in the soil for an appreciable length of time to provide plants and crops with the much-needed nitrogen and nutrients. As a result of this, coated agricultural urea has been described as a nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) compound, rich in vital nutrients such as zinc, nitrogen, and sulfur.

Sulfur is an essential nutrient that is instrumental in developing plant proteins, while zinc helps plants produce chlorophyll that is required for photosynthesis. In the same vein, nitrogen is useful for the development of amino acids that are building blocks of plant proteins and plant enzymes.

Agricultural urea contains 46% nitrogen. It enriches the soil with the needful minerals and microorganisms. In this way, it improves soil fertility and structure, leading to high production and yields. Agricultural urea is eco-friendly; it doesn’t pose any danger to wildlife and water resources.

This is how an agricultural urea works in the soil: Once it is applied to the soil, urea will be converted into ammonium ions and bicarbonate ions through a process called hydrolysis. Both ammonium ions and bicarbonate ions will be absorbed by the plants’ roots. These will help plants grow healthily and produce high yield of crops.

Unlike other types of fertilizers, agricultural urea reduces the amount of nitrogen that might have been lost through nitrogen oxide emissions, leaching, or volatilization. As a result of being coated, urea keeps the soil structure intact and consequently prevents soil degradation.

Some admirable characteristics of agricultural urea are that it is soluble in water, cheap, available, and does not possess any toxicity that could destroy plants’ roots. Moreover, most farmers prefer urea organic fertilizers to the chemical ones because they don’t necessarily change the soil PH and they increase water retention in soil and permit adequate aeration.

With agricultural urea, farmers can use the same land parcels over and over again, and this increases the rate of farming production. In other words, agricultural urea can guarantee food security for farmers and their customers; that is why urea is quite popular with small-, medium-, and large-scale commercial farmers.
