Post subject:  Asparagus Turning Brown

We have an asparagus bed of 150 plants. They were three year crowns when we planted them two years ago. Picked a few last year. Picked many this year. The plants have been doing well. Ferns were tall and healthy. They have been mulched and fertilized.

This past week or so some of the plants are turning brown and no new shoots appear to be coming out of the ground.
Any ideas? Is it the heat?
I'm in the Longview / Tyler area.

Did you apply mulch on top of where the shoots were coming out? What fertilizer did you use? How often are you watering and for how long?
