Urea and Compost

If I mixed 46-0-0 into a batch of compost tea would the chemical composition of the urea immediately destroy the microbial population of the tea?

I know, I know.......

Urea is a synthetic product that is not used by any organic gardener/farmer.

RE: Urea and Compost

With that in mind, the urea you can buy is the same chemical composition as that found in urine. It is just made from natural gas and much more concentrated.

I don't know what would happen in the tea. I would apply the urea separately. Actually I would not be using urea but I'm just sayin'.
