It's normal for the oldest foliage, lowest down on the plant, to age, turn yellow and then brown. If the lowest fronds are yellowing, it's probably normal. If you have yellowing foliage near the top of the plant, insects might be the cause, or your plant needs more or less water or needs to be fed. Look on the undersides of the affected foliage for signs of insect problems. If you find none, try feeding the sago and watering it deeply twice a week. I hope this solves the problem.
