The Q&A Archives: Green Bean Disease

Question: My green bean plants are not looking so well. There are brownish-spots on all of the leaves and the leaves are turning more yellow than green. What is wrong and what can I do?

Answer: Without seeing the plants I can only offer information on the two most common diseases of green beans - bacterial blight and root rot, a fungal disease. You can try a fungicide but once the plant is fully involved, fungicides won't control the problem. Wish I had better news for you!
