Managing leaf spot on swiss chard

I have what I believe is a case of leaf spot on my swiss chard. Anything I can do to prevent it from spreading to new leaves? Anyone tried any successful methods to control it? What conditions promote it?

Thanks in advance

Ok. I have studied these in my kindergarden year. What you need to do is take a peice of elephant dung and rub it all over the leaves. This should prevent infection.
