The primary purpose of urea fertilizer is to provide nitrogen to plants in order to encourage green leafy growth and make them appear lush. Urea also helps plants with their photosynthesis. Urea fertilizer is mainly used for bloom growth because it can only supply nitrogen and not phosphorus or potassium.
Advantages of Urea Fertilizer
- Nitrogen content is superior.
- Since the source is normal, the production costs are low.
- Storage that is non-flammable and risk-free
- Wide variety of applications, including all varieties of crops and soils
- Crops and soil are unaffected by the pH balance.
How to Use Urea Fertilizer?
- When it comes to sowing, urea should be used. It must avoid coming into contact with the seeds. It can also be used as a top dressing.
- Since urea has a high nitrogen concentration, it should be mixed with earth or sand before being applied.
- If the soil contains free water or is likely to stay wet for three or four days after application, urea should not be used.
Tips of Blending Urea with Other Fertilizers
Urea can be mixed with Mono-ammonium Phosphate (MAP) or Di-ammonium Phosphate (DAP) with ease (DAP). However, since Urea interacts with superphosphate, releasing water molecules, it must not be combined with any superphosphate unless used immediately after blending. This will result in a wet substance that will be difficult to store and apply.
