GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – According to recent studies, some synthetic fertilizers have a significant negative effect on fruit and vegetables by lowering the nutritional content thereof. In addition to that, the use of chemical products bears health risks for users, because getting in contact with substances contained in synthetic fertilizers can lead to significant health issues. Depending on the type and brand of fertilizer, compounds are not just unhealthy, but sometimes even toxic, thus posing a threat to the user, the environment and the end consumer.
Luckily, effective all-natural alternatives are now available, offered by the market leader of the industry, David Selakovic and Vegalab, a manufacturer of sustainable, organic agricultural products based in Geneva, Switzerland. Selakovic advocates the increased use of his company’s environmentally friendly products not only to minimize negative effects that synthetic fertilizers generally have, but points out that Vegalab’s organic innovations bring along a number of benefits to farmers and gardeners alike. Most chemical fertilizers contain only nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, which are important nutrients, but not enough to fully support optimized crop growth. Vegalab’s “Vega Pro” on the other hand is a liquid fertilizer that is applied to fruits, flowers, and vegetables at the beginning of crop growth. On top of the three common macronutrients nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium it contains a variety of secondary nutrients and micronutrients, such as boron, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum and zinc, providing all of the essential macro- and microelements that plants need throughout their early stages of growth.
Other fertilizers that David Selakovic and his research team in Switzerland have developed include “Brix Boost”, a fruit-sweetening fertilizer that improves the overall taste of fruit and vegetables through adding naturally occurring minerals and sugars, or “Color Boost”, a product that enhances the colors of flowers and fruits. “Brix Boost” improves the quality of fruits and vegetables thanks to ample amounts of phosphorus and potassium with natural sugars, amino acids, complex carbohydrates, and micronutrients such as mannitol, xylose or stevioside glycoside, while “Color Boost” stimulates the synthesis of materials responsible for the color and development of flowers, through macro elements that dictate shorter maturation times during flowering and fruiting, and also promotes better development of fruit set.
David Selakovic is proud of the state-of-the-art innovations his company has been developing for years: “No other manufacturer shares our technology or our commitment to developing products that use only natural plant extracts and minerals. Every one of our products strives to increase productivity, reduce waste, and encourage sustainability.” Thanks to his pioneer spirit and outstanding skills as a team and business leader, Vegalab has become a leading force in the field of sustainable agricultural products and a popular, environmentally friendly alternative for farmers, landscapers and hobby gardeners all over the world. Selakovic, who currently resides in Singapore with his wife Leah, has an international reputation as avid investor and savvy corporate advisor who has created many high-performance teams and has developed innovative strategies and comprehensive business initiatives for a great variety of corporations. In his free time, Selakovic is keen on applying his knowledge to, together with his wife Leah Selakovic, support charities, both within his home community, as well as international organisations.
