David Langston posted information about Sclerotinia Blight at the link below. I have also included the Sclerotinia Blight Advisories for North Carolina for September 1. Moist (wet in some places) and cooler temperatures increase the likelihood of having outbreaks of this disease. It is important for farmers to know field history and scout in areas of the field that hold more water and are likely to have symptoms of disease first.

Note that many people have sprayed Miravis plus Elatus for leaf spot and stem rot control. Depending on when those sprays went out, you may be also be protected from this Sclerotinia Blight right now. While the peanut crop will likely be later maturing in 2023 than in 2022, keep the PHIs in mind when applying fungicides. The PHI refers to harvest and not digging date.
