All-Natural Plant Growth Enhancers Developed by David Selakovic's Vegalab

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 06/09/14 -- By the year 2050, our planet will be inhabited by more than 10 billion people. To feed our fast-growing world, every acre of farmland will need to produce three times as much food, using the same amount of clean land and water as it does today. To ensure a future for our children, we need to make the earth a more sustainable place today. This is why Vegalab, a Switzerland-based manufacturer of agricultural products, is dedicated to the sustainable future of agriculture through developing methods and technologies that enable the optimized utilization of resources around the world, driven by the goal of providing products without depleting the earth we and our children live on.

One major step towards a more sustainable and efficient growth on a commercial level are all-natural plant growth enhancers, developed by Vegalab scientists in their Geneva laboratory. "The enhancers consist of all natural-products," explains David Selakovic, President of Vegalab S.A. Instead of using harmful chemical extraction processes, biostimulants and a variety of trace minerals are won from seaweed, while kelp products are mechanically extracted, which preserves important hormones, enzymes, and amino acids that are found naturally in kelp. "The ingredients in our fertilizers are food-grade quality, providing instant access to necessary elements for optimal plant growth rates. Every form of our mineral-based fertilizers provides readily available nutrition to plants increasing the amount of nutrition absorbed and leaving behind lower amounts of volatile residue in the soil," says Selakovic.

Vegalab, a formulator and manufacturer of environmentally responsible agricultural products rooted in sustainability, is headquartered in Geneva with offices all over the globe. The company employs over 200 people and has customers on every continent. Since 2008, Vegalab has grown into a global manufacturer and distributor. Vegalab President, David Dragan Selakovic, oversees the development and manufacturing of products that are designed to optimize the world's resources and encourage progressive change. Together with his experienced team of highly motivated scientists, Selakovic strives to not only make natural alternatives to the destructive pesticides and fertilizers that dominate the market today, but also to bridge the gap between traditional chemical and demanding natural solutions to offer practical, sustainable, all-natural approaches for farms of all sizes and farmers working in all climates.

The renowned business leader, David Selakovic, has an outstanding reputation as a thought leader, entrepreneur, adviser and philanthropist that reaches far beyond the borders of Switzerland or the agricultural industry. Born in Slovenia, Selakovic has travelled, lived and worked all over the world in the course of his impressive career and is currently based in Singapore. Whether looking to expand upon his portfolio of varied business ventures, helping others launch businesses, or conceptualizing new profitable lines of business, Selakovic is constantly building. His passion for business, for endowing others with his entrepreneurial zest, for creating highly productive teams, and bettering the communities in which he lives and works, is keenly important to him, and provides him with the inspiration to work ever harder.

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble. Why? Because your data center will not keep up with frenetic pace AWS, Microsoft and Google are rolling out new capabilities. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
"We are a monitoring company. We work with Salesforce, BBC, and quite a few other big logos. We basically provide monitoring for them, structure for their cloud services and we fit into the DevOps world" explained David Gildeh, Co-founder and CEO of Outlyer, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Doug Vanderweide, an instructor at Linux Academy, discussed why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers wit...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The Internet giants are fully embracing AI. All the services they offer to their customers are aimed at drawing a map of the world with the data they get. The AIs from these companies are used to build disruptive approaches that cannot be used by established enterprises, which are threatened by these disruptions. However, most leaders underestimate the effect this will have on their businesses. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rene Buest, Director Market Research & Technology Evangelism at Ara...

He discussed the evaluation of communication standards and IoT messaging protocols, data analytics considerations, edge-to-cloud tec...
When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
New competitors, disruptive technologies, and growing expectations are pushing every business to both adopt and deliver new digital services. This ‘Digital Transformation’ demands rapid delivery and continuous iteration of new competitive services via multiple channels, which in turn demands new service delivery techniques – including DevOps. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit 20th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Co-Chair Andi Mann, panelists examined how DevOps helps to meet the de...
In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...
After more than five years of DevOps, definitions are evolving, boundaries are expanding, ‘unicorns’ are no longer rare, enterprises are on board, and pundits are moving on. Can we now look at an evolution of DevOps? Should we? Is the foundation of DevOps ‘done’, or is there still too much left to do? What is mature, and what is still missing? What does the next 5 years of DevOps look like? In this Power Panel at DevOps Summit, moderated by DevOps Summit Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists loo...
