Sounds like it is a nitrogen deficiency. treat plants with fish emulsion on foliage and roots. the other thing it could be is bean fly. usually affected plants stems become swollen and cracked and the plants may become yellow. So check for swollen and cracked stems. if it's bean fly, you could try making a batch of garlic and chilli spray and spraying the plants. hth
