There are a number of factors that could be causing your difficulty. The super hot weather we’ve been having will cause butter beans to drop their blossoms, so you get no production. Lush vine growth can also indicate too much nitrogen. If you are spray insecticides try to do it in the early morning or late afternoon. Butter beans can be a bit touchy about that. Keep them well water and hopefully if we get a break from this intense heat, they’ll start throwing bloom.
