GENEVA, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 07/31/14 -- 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 organizations.

There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big D...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Ar...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
