Unfortunately, your photo did not come through. I am unable to see the damage. If it is turning yellow at the bottom of the stalk, where it meets the soil, then I am likely to suspect root rot.

This will occur when the soil doesn't have a chance to dry out some between watering.

I am unable to see if it is salvageable, but you can try a fungicide.

Here are some articles that will help:
