Product Overview

The Anderson’s HCU 44-0-0 Humic Coated Urea is developed with exclusive technology that produces 44-0-0 nitrogen granules. These granules are bonded with potassium humate which enhances the soil's biological and chemical properties. Those properties include nutrient efficiency, micronutrient uptake, water holding capacity, and soil nutrient holding capacity. HCU granules break down into humic and fluvic acid which makes it 100% soluble for use in dry and liquid applications. Compatible with most broadly used control products to maintain fine turfgrass during both warm and cool season. Can be used by solubilizing in water for spray application or dry-applying through standard dry spreading equipment. Available in a 50-pound bag.

Sort Questions
Q
Does The Andersons HCU 44 - 0 - 0 Humic Coated Urea slow nitrogen release from the urea when applied as a liquid?
A

The biggest difference when you are applying The Andersons HCU 44 - 0 - 0 Humic Coated Urea as a liquid is that you are applying less product per application that you would when applying it as a broadcast granule. So you can apply up to 0.25 lbs of N per 1000 sq ft when you are diluting it in water, while as a granule you can apply up to 1 lb of N per 1000 sq ft per application. This product is not a slow release fertilizer, so the length of reponse time you have from each application will depend on the rate of product applied, not necessarily how you applied it.

Q
Square ft coverage on The Anderson's HCU 44 - 0 - 0 Humic Coated Urea

How many sq ft does the entire bag cover in total?

A

How much area the Andersons HCU 44-0-0 Humic Coated Urea covers will depend on the rate at which you wish to apply it. For a dry broadcast application you can apply at 0.75 - 1.5 lbs of Nitrogen per 1000 sq ft, which would be at rates of 1.7 - 3.41 lbs of the product per 1000 sq ft. That would mean the 50 pound bag covers 14,000 - 29,000 sq ft when applied as a dry broadcast. Spray application rates will be lower since you need the product to dilute in water.

Please refer to the product label here for complete application instructions.

Q
Will the The Anderson's HCU 44 - 0 - 0 Humic Coated Urea be slow or quick release?
A

The Andersons HCU 44 - 0 - 0 Humic Coated Urea is more of a controlled-release fertilizer. According to the product label, HCU granules utilize a technology which bonds a uniform coating over a urea granule, not acting as a physical barrier to slow nitrogen release, but works in unison with urea to promote and enhance soil biology.  For more specific product information or questions not listed on the label, you may wish to contact the manufacturer The Andersons directly via their website's contact page here.

Q
Is Anderson's HCU 44 - 0 - 0 Humic Coated Urea a quick release fertilizer?

Our extension service recommends two fertilizer schedules, one for quick release and one for slow release. Since this seems to have zero WIN, I assume it’s quick release? Thanks.

A

The Andersons HCU 44 - 0 - 0 Humic Coated Urea is a quick release fertilizer.

Q
Will The Anderson's HCU 44 - 0 - 0 Humic Coated Urea release N at lower soil temperatures?

Can this product be applied as a granular late-season fertilizer to encourage root growth? Is it effective at lower soil temperatures of around 45-50°F?

A

The Andersons HCU 44-0-0 Humic Coated Urea would not be applied in the fall for a few different reasons. If you are looking for root development and a fertilizer that promotes that growth, you would need a fertilizer with a much lower Nitrogen content and a higher percentage of phosphorus (the middle number of the 3). You also do not want to apply that high of nitrogen levels late in the season as too much Nitrogen late in the year can create disease issues such as dollar spot the following spring.
