Green Bean Plants Have Fungus

Question From: c. mcfarland - MICHIGAN
Q: Hi Nancy I am having a problem with what appears to be a fungus on my green bean vegetable plants, I have never had an issue before in my garden over a 25 year period of avid vegetable gardening. Two questions: could you recommend a fungicide? and is there an organic treatment I could use instead that would be equally effective? Thank you!!

A: I think you have Fusarium root rot. I would try neem oil. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy,
