The main mode of urea degradation is enzymatic mineralization.
The main mode of urea degradation is enzymatic mineralization. In soil
and water, urea is expected to biodegrade fairly rapidly to ammonia and
bicarbonate if the temperature is not too low. The main factors
affecting the rates of nitrogen metabolism are the initial concentration
of the ureolytic bacteria, the physical state of the nitrifying
micro-organisms and the concentration of toxic organics.
