Although the administration of urea as a sole source of nitrogen may cause disturbances in the morphophysiology and metabolism of some groups of plants, a better understanding of plant urea metabolism, including the mechanisms of uptake, storage, internal transport, hydrolysis and assimilation of urea nitrogen, will be required to assess and possibly improve the direct usage of urea by plants (without prior soil conversion) in agricultural settings that employ urea fertilization (WANG et al., 2008; WITTE, 2011).
