Diseased green bean leaves

Asked June 15, 2017, 10:40 AM EDT

My bush green plant leaves ha e healthy veins and start with good leaf color. Now the leaf areas between the veins look as if painted over with a beige coating, starting from the center and radiating out. What should I do to save a crop?

A diagnosis cannot be made based on the photograph. I suggest sending a plant specimen to the ISU Plant and Insect Diagnostic Clinic.

Information on submitting a plant specimen to the clinic can be found at the website below.

Since it may be too late to "save" the current plants, it probably would be a good idea to plant additional beans.
