I don't know what it is, but I do know by the end of summer mine and everybody else's I see seem to die from the ground up. Not sure if that is what is going on with yall or what though.

likely lack of N, with all the rain it tends to "leach" the plant some, but this is usually not specific to bottom leaves. I would clip the yellow leaves off, if soil splashes on them it could be a fungal or even viral infection.

Without a pic it is likely too much water and not enough nutrients though.

I would cut the bottom infected stems off. If it is fungus it will spread to the rest of the plant and other plants too.
I always spray my tomatoes for fungus.

This is what I was thinking; a nutrient deficiency.
