GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – 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.
