The Q&A Archives: green beans

Question: The leaves on the plant are turning yellow. What are some possible causes for this and how might I treat it?

Answer: Jason,

Yellowing of bean leaves is usually caused by a root problem. Soil moisture extremes, root rot, or severe nutrient imbalances are among the more likely causes. Check out these factors by checking how moist the soil is a few inches deep, by pulling one plant to check for rotting roots, and by having a soil test done to evaluate nutrient content.
