Chemical Name: Carbamide.
Other Names: Urea, Carbonyldiamide, Carbamidic Acid or Aliphatic Amide.
Urea, in its original form, does not contain ammonium (NH+4), however, it hydrolyzes rapidly due to the effect of the enzyme " urease" and the temperature of the soil. In bare soils and with superficial
applications of Urea, some percentage of Ammonia (NH3) is lost by volatilization. Urea, when hydrolyzed, produces ammoniumand bicarbonate. The bicarbonate ions react with the acidity of the soil and increase the pH in the area close to the reaction site of this fertilizer (application band). Once
the urea has been converted into Ammonium (NH+4), it is absorbed by the clays and the organic matter of the soil and the Ammoniums eventually nitrified or absorbed directly by the plants.
It is a granular chemical fertilizer for direct application to the soil. It contains nitrogen in the form of
amide. The amide form is very soluble in water. It ismade by neutralizing carbon dioxide with
ammonia. Among the solid fertilizers, Urea is the Nitrogen source with the highest concentration, with great advantages in economic terms and in the management of highly Nitrogen-demanding crops.
The Urea we offer has an inhibitor in the form of a biodegradable buret layer (max. 1,0%)
