Urea



Fertilizer Urea

Urea, a white crystalline solid containing 46% nitrogen, is widely used in the agricultural industry as an animal feed additive and fertilizer. VYCO SA is supplying only the nitrogen fertilizer for the moment. In the past decade urea has surpassed and nearly replaced ammonium nitrate as a fertilizer.

Commercially, fertilizer urea can be purchased as prills/prilled or as a granulated material, in 50 kgs bags or in bulk in big bags. In the past, it was usually produced by dropping liquid urea from a "prilling tower" while drying the product. The prills/prilled formed a smaller and softer substance than other materials commonly used in fertilizer blends. Today, though, considerable urea is manufactured as granules. Granules are larger, harder, and more resistant to moisture. As a result, granulated urea has become a more suitable material for the clients for fertilizer blends.

Urea can be applied to soil as a solid or solution or to certain crops as a foliar spray. Urea usage involves little or no fire or explosion hazard. Urea's high analysis, 46% N, helps reduce handling, storage and transportation costs over other dry N forms. The key to the most efficient use of urea is to incorporate it into the soil during a tillage operation. It may also be blended into the soil with irrigation water. A rainfall of as little as 0.25 inches is sufficient to blend urea into the soil to a depth at which ammonia losses will not occur.

The synonym for Urea is “Carbamide” and it’s chemical definition is a synthesized product from ammonia and carbon dioxide and used as fertilizer and in animal feed and in plastics.

VYCO SA is sourcing its Urea from Ukraine, Russia and CIS factories, directly from the producers.

We are able to supply on basis CIF end destination or on basis FOB loading port i.e. Odessa (Ukraine) or other ports.
