Product Description

Analysis: 44-0-0

This proprietary product of Agrium is a urea contained within a flexible polymer coating; the polymer membrane allows moisture to diffuse into the granule, creating a nitrogen solution; the solution moves out through the membrane at a rate controlled by soil temperature and moisture level, matching the nitrogen demand of the growing crop

Properties:

  • Granular
  • Green in colour

Advantages:

  • Extends the availability of nitrogen during the growing season and reduces nitrogen volatilization in comparison to standard urea
  • Lowers N loss to leaching, denitrification and volatilization
  • Less hygroscopic than standard urea, thus lower tendency to bridge and deteriorate
  • Application methods: broadcast (surface-applied) or banded (adjacent to the seedbed)

Miscellaneous:

  • Blends fairly well with other dry fertilizers but susceptible to abrasion
  • Flows more freely than many other dry fertilizers
