I removed a mention in the lede of potassium as a major economic product. I've consulted sources such as the USGS, World Factbook, and Library of Congress and none of them mention potassium or potash in connection with Uzbekistan (although some connect it with the former Soviet Union in general). It's not among the top 12 producers of potash according to that article, and not mentioned elsewhere in this one. This is probably Borat-based vandalism; in the movie, Uzbekistan is portrayed as an enemy of Kazakhstan, the world's greatest producer of potassium. --BDD (talk) 21:14, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
It appears to have been added by an IP vandal in December 2009. Thanks, WikiBlame! Doesn't exactly reflect well on us that it stood for so long, however. --BDD (talk) 21:30, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
I am assuming that the cited text Lubin, Nancy. "Early history". In Curtis. refers to: "Kazakstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan: Country Studies (Area Handbook Series)" Edited by Glenn E. Curtis, Publication Date: November 12, 1997, ISBN-10: 0844409383, ISBN-13: 978-0844409382, Edition: 1st ed?
Not only has it been used here, but copiously in History of Uzbekistan, and Uzbeks. The name of the chapter(?) is unknown and no pages numbers have been provided. In the context, I find it difficult to feel convinced that it is a genuine citation. For the moment, I'm tagging it for page number/s. Hopefully, someone can assist me further with this difficult-to-obtain text. If it isn't properly sourced, I'm sorely tempted to remove it. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 00:51, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
