Broad beans and chocolate spot

I have several different plantings of broad beans and the early ones have been affected with chocolate spot. This has been made worse by the wet weather. Bees have had little chance to do much pollinating so there may not be much of a crop this year but I am not giving up just yet. The books say broad bean seeds need to be planted straight into where they are to grow but I have more success if I get them to grow in small pots first.
