Would you consider the fertilizer ‘Miracle Grow’ an organic fertilizer or a chemical fertilizer

The source of nitrogen in Miracle Gro is urea. Urea is technically considered a synthetic organic fertilizer. It is man-made, but it depends on the action of microorganisms in the soil to break it down to a form the plant can use (ammonium). It is not slow-release and from an organic gardening perspective, I certainly wouldn’t consider it organic such as bone and blood meal products, hydrolyzed chicken feathers, peat, manure, etc.
