Nitrogen fertilizer is one of the most regular fertilizer categories produced with different chemical combinations of nitrogen; the fertilizers are commonly available in three forms-ammonia, nitrate, and urea.Once applied to the fields the fertilizers are absorbed by plants are converted into various other forms through chemical reactions.

Their application helps confer better texture and color to plants, thus improving agricultural productivity.The Haber Bosch process is considered to be the most preferred technique for the production of nitrogenous fertilizers.

It is also applied in solution form as a spray.Most of the crops react effectively to the urea application.

Upon application to the soil, urea undergoes decomposition in the presence of urease enzyme synthesized by soil microorganisms. The conversion of urea into nitrate, as a result of a complete decomposition, takes place in about one week’s time. Urea is relatively resistant to leaching.
