Resumen

Urea is the nitrogen-containing fertilizer most used in agricultural fields; however, the nutrient given by the urea is lost into the environment. The aim of this research was to determine the effect of two soil textures by applying a prolonged-release system of urea (PRSU) on the N losses. This research shows an important decrease of the nitrate and ammonium losses from 24.91 to 87.94%. Also, the microbiological population increases after the application of the PRSU. It was concluded that both soil textures presented the same loss-reduction pattern, where the N from the nitrates and ammonium was reduced in the leachates, increasing the quality of the soil and the microbial population in both soil textures after the PRSU application.
