Anyone Here Broadcast Urea?

I'm going to use some Urea this spring on no-till wheat stubble before planting my corn. I usually side dress NH3 because it's price is usually so much better but this year it seems Urea is very competitive and the fields I'm planting in are notoriously hard to get sealing in when using NH3.  I was warned by my local co-op's agronomist..that they have seen root pruning result from heavy (200 units) applications of urea. I'm wondering how other guys have fared when using Urea in a broadcast situation...Is this a real issue quite often?
