Did you have a frost recently? How has your weather been? How often do you water it?

The more information you give us, the better we can help you :D.

no frost. We haven't had any rain in sometime even thr grass it yellowing some so I gave them 50oz maybe a little more of water and 15-30-15 three times in a weeks time. We had a few plenty hot days last week high 80s low 90s and the sun was ruff. The soil is a mixture of 50% clayish- sand. and 50% horse,cow,maybe a little chicken and saw dust thats about aleast 6 to 8 years old. I did see fire ants moving in to the mounts and treating for them.

seedingtim,

I think you should throttle back on the fertilizer. Chemical fertilizer is potent stuff. Your manure alone probably would have carried you until flower stage. Look up fertilizer burn.

Yep, it's sounding like you're going too heavy on the fertilizer. Give it a break for a while and see what happens.
