Bush Beans

This year we planted 4 types of bush beans: Tendergreen, Royal Burgundy, Keanerly Yellow, and Jacob's Cattle.  The first two are fresh snap beans the second two are dried beans for soup and stews.  They are planted in the order listed from left to right.  So as you can tell from the picture the fresh snap beans are thriving and the drying beans aren't.  All of them have been planted at the same time and treated exactly the same.

I am not really sure what the issue is with the two types on the right but the leaves have had plenty of disease and they just haven't grown as much.  I am wondering if I can pull them to dry instead of waiting for the plants to dry in the ground and then plant new seeds to maybe get a better crop.
