The 2005B DAP19 is 165lbs and 55% faster than the 2593 so I guess itís watch this space. There were 10 improvements in the patch this year so they should be faster. The big ones were :- Better vine burying (we now mould the peat over the vine and put the pot back to keep out the light) We are on nearly all friendly bugs and virtually no spraying chemicals. The result is much better leaves. The cooling system has helped on the few occasions that itís got really hot in the patch. We increased the venting temperature from 20C 70F to 24C which is about 78F We left the CO2 burners on. We only get the benefits in the morning and if we could afford cold CO2 like Matt D we would put it in all day. Great informative diary Matt. On a couple of the cold and miserable wet cloudy days we have slammed the vents shut by hand a left the CO2 on. And plenty of tiny improvements but they all add up
