    Do any of you guy's buy your Urea in bulk? I can buy 1 ton of Urea from the local CO-OP for $378.00. The same amount from Lesco costs me $642.00. The only thing about the bulk Urea is that it doesn't seem to be processed as well as the Lesco Urea. Anybody have any thoughts on this?

    I think you will find the bulk urea to be lower in quality and dirty. I bought Ag quality urea once, I found rocks, corn and wood chips in it. if you are just spreading it you might get away with it but I wouldn't use it for spraying.

    You pretty much answered your own question. The ag stuff isn't as processed as Lesco's urea, so then the question becomes, "How accurate of a spread am I going to get?"

    The ag products are usually dirty, dusty, and have some debris in them. Lawn striping here we come!! ;)
