Urea is the most important fertilizer used worldwide for agricultural purposes. When applied to soils, it is weakly adsorbed by soil particles, and tends to concentrate in the soil solution, hence it is prone to losses. In this paper an attempt is made to model, urea distribution coefficients, of four different soils viz. loam, silty clay, silty clay loam and silt loam soils, with soil pH, Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC) and clay fraction. Urea distribution coefficient was found to have increasing relationship whilst pH and CEC were found to have inverse relationship.
