Who pass on the grass, I agree with you. Urea has its place. It is an excellent nitrogen carrier. Most other forms are high in salt. Almost all fertilizers contain either urea or sulfer coated urea, these days. If a soil test shows no need for potash or phosphorus--why would you use anything else--except slow release forms of urea, (like SCU, IBDU, or methyene urea). Yes I learned the basics at TruGreen. I have been going to Turf Conferences for 20 years at Michigan State University. I do not remember them talking about turf damage due to urea. How many vote urea is OK? Who votes never apply to growing turf alone?
