I've dealt with this before.
It's a soil level bacteria infecting the roots.
This worked for me but caution is needed.

Dilute chlorine bleach roughly 1/4 cup bleach to 1 gallon water.
Water the extreme outer areas of the plant where only some of the mixture will get to the plant itself.
You are trying to antibacteria the soil more than the plant.
The plant needs a bit of the mixture, but not much.
The problem is in the soil and that is what you should focus on.

Wait for about 2 days after using mix and then water the shit out of it to dilute the remaining bleach.
It may take a few more days but new growth should be normal.

Yer welcome

But its happening in many different locations, and only outdoors.

When we use Promix BX in Smart Pots, Outside, some of the plants still get the disease.

When we grow the same stuff, same soil inside 40 feet away, there never ever this blight. No bugs either.
We are in East Ky, and it happens in almost every location we plant. And it doesn't happen to all the plants, but the biggest majority it does.

Some think it is a Phytoplasmas disease brought on by bugs.

I've only seen it outdoors also.
When I grow outdoor it's usually straight into the ground and I only use containers for a (I'll never share the secret) stealth guerilla grow.

Try my suggestion on 1 plant.
The plant is ailing anyway, not like you're going to lose much if it doesn't work.....but what if it does eh?

But I do have to ask..
You have looked VERY close and are certain there are no bugs on the tops of the plants? Right?

Theres no major bug damage, but there is some. Its said Phytoplasmas are carried by bugs. Mainly Leafhoppers and takes 40 days for symptoms, after infection.

But I also understand the logic in using your method on 1 plant.

Did your problem ever get resolved with the addition of nutrients? Have you considered a broad spectrum fungicide? I have had good luck with many suspect soil problems using a Streptomyces product called Actinovate. Good luck
