Would you be able to upload some images of the plants? Images are always very helpful for diagnosing symptoms. It certainly sounds like a disease of some kind

There are a couple of things that you describe that make me suspect curly top - caused by Beet curly top virus. The cup-shaped leaves, early senescence and small pods are certainly symptoms. Could you please add some images? It is very hard to make a diagnosis without seeing the plants.
