Urea
CO(NH2)2
Coated grade (white prills or granules); uncoated grade (white prills or granules)
Having the highest nitrogen content among the solid nitrogenous fertilizers typically used, Urea main application is as a nitrogen-release fertilizer. In fact, more than 90% of the Urea produced commercially is destined for that end. Urea is also employed in the manufacture of urea-formaldehyde resins and urea-melamine-formaldehyde, used in a range of applications such as adhesives, laminates, molding compounds, coatings and textile finishes. In the past years, Urea has been used commercially as a cattle-feed supplement. Other uses of Urea include pharmaceutical preparations (reagent-grade), glues, solvents, NOx removal reagent, airport runway deicing agent and plasticizer.

Urea (a.k.a. Carbamide) is an nitrogenous organic compound composed of a carbonyl group attached to two amine groups, and plays an important role in many biological processes. it is a product of the decomposition of proteins. It is mostly used as nitrogen-release fertilizer. Urea has the highest nitrogen content between all solid nitrogen-based fertilizers. It is found as white and odorless solid. It is soluble in water and it has very low toxicity.
