Question Basil plant disease

my basil plants are turning nearly black on the lower third of the main stem. What would cause this and is there anything I can do to save the plants?

No the pro around here, but...

Sweet basil?

Sounds like Fusarium Wilt. See here:

If it is, there's no product or cure for it.
