    John deere's poly plus is sulfur coated urea.

    Sulfur coated is fine. I suspect that the Poly Plus is sulfur coat with a final coat of polymer plastic--better as the granules do not crack as easily.
    Both products should spread well.
    In times of high humidity--the urea in the mix tends to attract moisture--that may cause problems.
    Both should be about equal, in that there is low burn potential, when used at a reasonable rate by experienced workers that don't suffer many tip-over accidents.

    Is it a blend with Bio-Solids? When we use bs blends, the spreaders get pretty gummy.
