My beans have got a dry and curly leaf on lower branches. My soil is very good but maybe too well drained. Any advice please

Dying leaf could be just old leaves or some disease. Curly leaf could be a disease or dry weather. A plant will protect itself in the heat of the day or hot weather by exposing less leaf to the sun. Put some mulch on the top of the soil to keep more moisture in the soil. In the future look at adding something to your soil to slow down the water draining through the soil so quickly.
