UREA is the farmer friendly product. Urea is a nitrogenous compound formed in the liver. It has a chemical formula of CH4N2O. It is also known as Carbamide or Ureophil. Urea is a safe, useful compound with a significant history of usage.
Generally, Urea is well used for boosting the crops in the direction of growth. It is a naturally occurring molecule that is produced by protein metabolism and found abundantly in mammalian urine.
Urea is the major constituent of the urine and the principal means for disposal of nitrogen derived from amino acid metabolism.
Specialized phloretin-inhibitable urea transporters are expressed in kidney medulla and play a central role in urea excretion and water balance.
The structure of urea:
Based upon it’s structure it generally called as cabamide. Due to it’s bonding of carbon(C) and Amine(NH2) with oxygen (O). Urea is a nitrogenous compound formed in the liver. It has a chemical formula of CH4N2O. It is also known as Carbamide or Ureophil.
Composition of Urea:
Most urea contains about 45% nitrogen, and protein contains 16% nitrogen. Therefore, when urea is converted to protein, the crude protein equivalent value of urea is about 281%. It must be recalled that urea contains no other useful feed components such as energy, minerals, or vitamins.
Why Urea is turned to 45kg bag from 50kg bag?
NEW DELHI: The government’s decision to reduce the size of urea bags to 45 kg in 2017 from the earlier norm of 50 kg has brought down the consumption of the fertilizer or nitrogen (N) by 8% per hectare, according to a recently-published study that has been presented to the fertilizer ministry.
