This could be caused by watering issues, to much or to little.
If the plants are to dry they may be dying down prematurely. If the ground is wet and excessive damp conditions it can cause root rot.
I would trim away the dead material and treat the plants with Neem Oil. This acts as both an insecticide and fungicide. Stressed plants can invite both.
Here are a few article for you.
