Fungicides and Late-Planted Peanuts

A consultant called about late planted – or replanted – peanut. Planting date was June 5 and emergence was slow. I initially told him they should be sprayed by the middle of next week (which would be July 15 or so) but he also said there is a near 100% chance of rain by the end of this week. Also, leaf spot advisories have been favorable for leaf spot everywhere (this is different from normal, when we often would not get favorable advisories until the middle of July or even later). Considering all that, I recommended to spray before it rains, but just with Bravo due to the small size of the plants.
