Green beans

Zone North Atlanta, GA Zone 7A | Anonymous added on September 2, 2017 | Answered

I am not able to figure out what this weird brown growth is on my green bean plants. They have flowers and beans but the bottom of it is getting stocky with this brown fuzzy growth all over it. Not sure what it is or what I need to do.

There are several diseases that can cause this, including rust and several types of bacterial blight. Visual identification is best. See if the appearance and symptoms match any of the diseases in this article:
