Potash: A fertiliser used particularly to enhance light, sandy soils, refers to any material – natural or a by-product (eg: wood-ash) containing the element potassium. Most seaborne potash takes the form of carbonate – a salt – a harmless granular substance, although concentrated potassium chloride is carried under its more usual name of muriate of potash (MOP). Major potash exports come from the USA and Canada; the GDR; the USSR (the world’s leading producer); the Europe; and from Israel (where the Dead Sea waters form an important source).
