The browning is not due to a lack of fertilizer. The most likely cause is a lack of soil moisture. It is also possible that some type of fungal disease has affected it. However this is impossible to assess without seeing a sample and I don't think it is likely. You might want to have your County Extension Office look at a sample to see what they think. Otherwise try to keep the soil slightly moist (not too wet) and it should turn around and resume normal growth soon.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
