How to use urea fertilizer?
Spread your urea-based fertilizer evenly across your crops. Apply your fertilizer mixture as you would apply urea on its own, spreading it evenly across the soil. Then water and till the soil in order to incorporate the fertilizer. Urea is less dense than other fertilizers.
When should I apply urea to my lawn?
You can water the soil yourself, apply the urea before it rains, or apply within 48 hours after the snow on your fields has completely melted. Till the soil to incorporate the urea.
Should urea be wet or dry before fertilizing?
Wet the soil. Before urea is turned into the nitrates your plants need, it first becomes ammonia gas. Because gases can easily escape from the surface of the soil, applying fertilizer when the ground is wet will help to incorporate the urea into the soil before the chemical reaction begins.
What is a urease inhibitor in fertilizers?
Urease is the enzyme that begins the chemical reaction that turns urea into the nitrates plants need. Applying urea fertilizers before planting leads to high amounts of the urea being lost before it can benefit your plants. Using a fertilizer with a urease inhibitor can slow the chemical reaction, and helps retain urea in the soil.
