ummm, a cycle doesn't produce anything, everything goes in circles.

Water Cycle
Precipitation, evaporation+transpiration , condensation....

Nitrogen Cycle
lightning/nitrogen fixation bacteria(n2)-->ammonia--->nitrification(N03)--->absorption(nuclei acids, proteins)-->ammonification(ammonia, guano, uric acid)--->denitrification(n2)

Mithril is right. In a cycle you can not call something a product. Because, everything is reactant and product. That's why we call it a cycle.
