How is urea helpful to plants?

Asked by kingofanimae2 | 2nd May, 2010, 07:04: PM

Expert Answer:

Urea provides nutrients to plants. In the soil, it hydrolyses to ammonia and carbon dioxide. The ammonia is oxidized by bacteria in the soil to nitrate which can be absorbed by the plants. Urea is highly soluble in water and is, therefore, also very suitable for use in fertilizer solutions.
