Basic Data


Trade name: UREA

Equivalent Grade: 46-0-0

Category: Fertilizer

Family: Nitrogen

Presentation: Granulated solid in bags




Urea is the most popular fertilizer.


It is the granulated solid with the highest concentration of nitrogen (N).


Nitrogen is essential in the plant.


It is part of every living cell. Plants require large amounts of N to grow normally.


It is necessary for the synthesis of chlorophyll and as part of the chlorophyll molecule, it is involved in the process of photosynthesis.


It is a component of vitamins and plant energy systems.


And it is also an essential component of amino acids; Therefore nitrogen is directly responsible for the increase of proteins in plants, being directly related to the number of leaves, shoots, stems, etc.


In cereals, nitrogen is decisive in the amount of protein in grains.
