Could be low biuret, but if the product label does not list the biuret content there is no way of knowing.    If you can't find any I could send you a 5-lb. jar of low biuret urea (0.5% biuret).

This is my normal spraying time, but December was so warm, there is already new growth and small blossoms showing up. Can I still spray, or is it too late.

To late to influence the bloom. The next urea spray which is designed to increase fruit size is between July 1 and July 20.

Millet, second spray on Motherís Day? Third spray, Father Day? This adjustable sprayer is perfect for over/under spraying, very fine mist. I spray more than 3 times for my citrus but also for my other trees. Bought a bag, which is more than enough for all my trees for the next 3 years thatís why I store it in a sealed container.

Thanks so much to Millet. I just gave my golden nugget mandarin tree (with Sumo and Pokan grafted) a spray.

Last year only Sumo set like a dozen fruits. No fruits for golden nugget-hope this year itís more productive.

Urea from Alpha Chemicals caused extensive burning of leaves.   Defoliation goes from none to complete leaf loss depending on the plant.  There is some minor damage on most trees.

My best guess  either the spray was over applied, sprayed in the heat of the day, or not a low biuret variety

I believe it is not low biuret.  The package did not indicate.  The data sheet said it was low biuret.

I tried urea from Alpha Chemicals once and it caused burning and defoliation. Their specification sheet says that biuret is less that 0.5%, which I believe is considered "low"biuret". Their spec sheet is here: https://alphachemicals.com/msds___specs
I do not know if I over applied it because I do not know what is meant by "over applied". I sprayed both sides of leaves until I saw it dripping from leaves. This was done indoors and trees were kept indoors under lights.

I've used the Alpha Chemicals urea many times with no problems.

I have used Alpha Chemicals since 2019 and not had burning.
Perhaps do another limited test application?
Are you sure the dilution rate was correct?

Do you spray a single application per cycle or multiple? Iím thinking is single but not 100% sure.

Single.  Spray to get good coverage, upper and lower leaf surface, but do not over soak the tree.

Just finished spraying all my citrus trees using AC urea. I have not noticed any burned leaves using the AC urea.

My citrus are only in the ground 1-2 years (all my 14 or so citrus were extirpated by Winter Storm Uri Feb '21) and are currently not holding fruit.   Does this foliar spray benefit a tree without fruit?  BTW, I do have my trees on a regular fertilizer regimen, fertilizing them 3-4 times a year.
Thanks

For a tree without fruit, the urea spray  would just be a general nitrogen source.

Does citrus absorb urea from the roots as well, or is soil soak useless? Is this an environmental concern?

If I use a decreased amount in my spray, say 1 tablespoon per gallon, can I spray more frequently like bi-weekly. Will I still have high risk burning leaves in hot weather?

Yes, But for soil application through the roots you would be better off using a ammonium nitrate formula.

Find a fertilize that contains all three major ingredients N, P and K plus race elements.
