These plants have a disease called bacterial leaf blight, Pseudomonas cannabina (pv.) alisalensis.  This is a relatively new disease that has cause millions of dollars in damage since it was first discovered.  This particular field was a total loss.  Not much is known yet for control options though Clemson and USDA plant pathologists are researching options now.  Check out this slide show for more info.
