The LED 240-R was researched and designed based on plant-specific grow trials comparing eight different spectrums. These field tests were conducted to verify the most effective spectrum for the vegetative stage of plant growth. The Eye Hortilux LED 240-R utilizes the spectrum that far outperformed all others.
The spectrum chosen by Eye Hortilux® for the LED 240-R is based on independent third party licensed grower research and grow trials. The focus of this research was to identify the most productive and efficient spectrum for the vegetative stage of plant growth using specific wavelengths of light produced by LED lighting. Eight separate grow trials were conducted. Each trial exposed plants to very different spectral distributions. All grow trials were conducted in separate, isolated grow rooms. The patent-pending spectrum chosen for the Eye Hortilux LED 240-R far outperformed all other spectrums in this experiment.
