It looks like my beets have developed cercospora. Are they still edible? Anything I can do that doesn't involve fungicides?

Thanks.

Welcome to the forum @Yuki333 :)
Could you give us a bit more information and some photos ? What kind of beets are we discussing? Are you quite sure we are talking about cercospora? Can you say how long has the problem been there, and have you caught it early?

Prevention is the best approach to cercospora ...crop rotations/cover crops will virtually eliminate the problem in the future. A three year cycle is generally recommended.
