Urea (CO(NH2)2) is produced from ammonia and carbon dioxide. Urea is a highly-efficient general purpose nitrogen fertilizer used in agriculture for ground treatment, top-dressing in early spring and in vegetation period, used for all soil types for any crop plants. Urea stimulates a significant increase in yields of agricultural crops. Urea is also used in industry for production of plastics, glues, and resins. Urea also finds an application as ruminant’s forage additive agent (100 g of urea are equal by feeding value to 260 g of proteins or 2,7 kg of oats). Urea is treated with conditioning additives to prevent caking. Production form – granules and prills.
