Most of the time, this is due to soils that remain too wet for too long. Unfortunately, your photos did not come through, so I cannot see the state of the soil and plants in question.

Seedlings need very little nutrients to get started, and starting them in compost will burn them before they even germinate fully.

Likely, it is due to infected soils from overwatering, or saturated soil from the same.
