Anthracnose (beans)

Symptoms:

Fungi live on infected bean seed and in debris on top of garden soil. Moderate, frequent rainfalls, especially if accompanied by winds, provide perfect conditions for spread of anthracnose.

Solutions:

Plant beans in a different location each year and purchase disease-free seed each year. Anthracnose is spread quickly and easily when plants are wet, so avoid handling or working around plants when the leaves are moist. Apply a copper soap fungicide when beans first begin to flower and continue at 7- to 10-day intervals for as long as needed. If possible, apply when rain or other moisture won't dampen plants for at least 12 hours after application. We recommend Soap-Shield Flowable Liquid Copper Fungicide.
