Cyco Potash Plus will act as a strengthening aid to plants and will help your plant to retain water throughout the flowering phase of your plant. It will also work to balance other nutrients, especially nitrate, to make sure they are available to the plant so they can be used efficiently, so as avoiding losses which may be harmful to the plant. Cyco Potash Plus will also help in the development of a plant to produce large flowers. Cyco Potash Plus also aids in achieving a full yield and quality. Cyco Potash Plus will combat plant stress in many ways, these functions are diverse and include efficient nitrogen and improved water use, drought tolerance and frost Resistance.

What is Potash?
The potassium used in plant fertilizers is known as potash. Potassium is one of the three most important micro-nutrients to maintain optimal plant health and potash is a common form of naturally occurring potassium in soil. Potash is used to ensure the soil is equipped with enough potassium to grow plants adequately. The term potash derives its roots from early usage. Potash used to be leached from wood ashes in iron pots resulting in the term pot-ash. After continuous harvest, soils require potash inputs to ensure continued soil productivity and crop yield. The main function of potassium in plants is to help with synthesis (an integral process in generating plant proteins and hormones). With intensive agriculture across the globe there is an ongoing depletion of naturally occurring potash, so there is a need to produce and replenish the soils with potash. The need for potash in soil is determined by the pH of the soil, when the soil pH is alkaline there typically is a need to add potash. But an excess can also be a problem so it is important to conduct a soil test before planting and ensure you are planting based on acidic or alkaline needs of plants. In order to ensure the potash reaches the roots, it needs to be placed keeping the reach in mind. Typically, potash only penetrates up to an inch within the soil, so, you need to ensure it is placed well enough to reach the roots.
There are four types of common types of potash.
- Potassium chloride is the most affordable yet effective source of potash for maximum crop yield.
- Potassium sulfate is known for its quick penetration properties and the ideal source of potash for sulfur deficient plants.
- Potassium-magnesium sulfate is essential for chlorophyll and is a great way to manage potash and magnesium in plants.
- Potassium nitrate is the perfect potash for high-yielding crops as they need high levels of nitrate along with potash.
While these are the popular choices there any many other options depending on your crop and soil needs.
What does British Pharmaceutical Grade mean?
Cyco Nutrients only use 100% British Pharmaceutical Grade as most are aware but what actually does “Pharmaceutical Grade” mean? To most, we are probably given an impression when reading these two words that the ingredient could be fit for Pharmacy medicine, ie; “such is the grade of the product that it could probably be clean enough for Pharmaceutical use.”
If that’s what has ever crossed your mind, you’d be 100% correct!
What makes something a “Pharmaceutical Grade” product? This is determined by a book released annually called the Pharmacopoeia. Pharmacopoeias provide standards for pharmaceutical substances and medicinal products. The Pharmacopoeia deals with the purity and quality of an ingredient and sets the standards high. If an ingredient is to be labelled “Pharmaceutical Grade” the product must be in excess of 99% purity with no binders, fillers, excipients, dyes, or unknown substances while maintaining strict quality control.
The British Pharmacopoeia (BP) is the national pharmacopoeia of the United Kingdom. It is an annually published collection of quality standards for UK medicinal substances. It is used by individuals and organisations involved in pharmaceutical research, development, manufacture, and testing. Pharmacopoeial standards are publicly available and legally enforceable standards of quality for medicinal products and their constituents. The British Pharmacopoeia is an important statutory component in the control of medicines which complements and assists the licensing and inspection processes of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) of the United Kingdom. Together with the British National Formulary (BNF), the British Pharmacopoeia defines the UK’s pharmaceutical standards.
Pharmacopoeial standards are compliance requirements; that is, they provide the means for an independent judgment as to the overall quality of an article and apply throughout the shelf-life of a product. The inclusion of a substance in a pharmacopoeia does not indicate that it is either safe or effective for the treatment of any disease.
