Default Does urea have a shelf life?

Does urea have a shelf life if it is still in a sealed bag? I have a chance at getting some 3 year old urea for free and was wondering if it is worth hauling the 500lbs away from the guy?

At my age, the shelf life of Urea is about every 20 minutes

Default urea

As long as it has stayed dry it will be ok. Grab a bag and see if it is still granular, or is it a solid chunk? Chunk chuck it.

Heat can be an issue with urea as well. I won't hurt anything other than your back if its degraded.

As long as it is still granular--I would put it on and see what happens.

For Free I would use it as long as I could spread it. FREE is FREE you can alway hit it later if you don't see good resolts. Or I have a better Idea let me try it for you and I will let you know the resolts

As long as it is still pelletized/granular (not gotten wet) it will be fine
