This is a type of rust that, typically, effects Bluegrass. This will be best controlled with dolomitic lime, and wettable sulfur, or instead you can use copper fungicides. I tend to lean towards the first option due to less toxicity, but the second option is stronger.

Although this is not the same rust species, it is very similar in how it spreads, and how it is controlled, so this article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/herbs/lemongrass/brown-leaves-on-lemongrass.htm
