How to Manage Pests

UC Pest Management Guidelines

Dry Beans


(Reviewed 1/18, updated 1/18)

In this Guideline:


Sunscald symptoms first appear as small water-soaked spots on upper surfaces of leaves, stems, or pods that are exposed to the sun. These spots are generally close together, turn reddish brown, and form large spots on affected plant parts.


This condition is caused by exposure to intense sunlight or high temperatures. These conditions occur following periods of high humidity and overcast skies.


None available.
