Beans are vegetable plants that are easy to grow and nutritious to boot. However, gardeners who intend to grow beans should be aware that they can be prone to disease. One of the more common diseases found often in bean plants is halo blight. Halo blight gets its name from the yellow, halo-like shape that often appears on plants afflicted with this disease. The yellow halo is not always present, but halo blight is otherwise identifiable through the red and brown lesions it creates on sick bean plants. Halo blight is especially frustrating because it infects the whole plant, so once the bean is sick with this disease it cannot be saved or replanted. Halo blight results in environments with high humidity, but even in garden areas that are especially prone to developing the blight, there are steps gardeners can take to prevent it and keep their beans healthy.
