An extensive field survey was undertaken during the 2003 to 2005 growing seasons to assess the prevalence and incidence of foliar fungal and bacterial diseases affecting dry bean in North Dakota. The most prevalent diseases were common bacterial blight, white mold, and bacterial brown spot. This survey information on the occurrence and severity of diseases affecting dry bean should help prioritize future research needs and breeding programs.
