Urea is an organic compound which comes in a form of a white solid, at standard conditons. This compound has an important role in the metabolism of nitrogen-containing substances; it can also be found in the urine of mammals. Urea has many applications in the chemical industry, where it is used in the synthesis of many compounds. One of the most important uses of urea is the production of fertilizers.

Thanks to the importance of this compound in agriculture, urea can easily be found in most stores that sell fertilizers and other agricultural equipment. Most commonly, it comes in relatively large quantities. However, smaller packages of this compound can also usually be found. Smaller amounts can also be bought from pharmacies. Urea can also be ordered from chemical selling companies (if higher purity is needed).
