The project of this work was to determine the effects of encapsulated urea fertilizer (EUFs) on plant growth. Urea was applied as nitrogen (N) which widely used in agriculture as a common source of N in solid form using at rate of 30 kg/ha. Studies carried out in a greenhouse have found that EUFs increasing fresh weight, root fresh weight, stem dry weight and root dry weight of kale plant. Improved understanding of the releasing behavior of controlled-release fertilizer was used Fick’s law model. Impacts of EUFs are strongly effect on biomass and mineral N applications. In various considerations, these EUFs represent good controlled-release and water-retention capacity, being degradable in soil and environmental friendly, could be especially used in agricultural applications.
Keywords: Chinese kale, Controlled-release, Encapsulated urea fertilizer, Fick’s law model, Urea fertilizer.
