|Water Wise Plants
A: Two things come to mind when agave is yellowing during early to mid-summer: watering too often or agave weevil. May, June and July are the months we see yellowing of the tops and death from agave weevil. Because you mentioned so many plants are affected, watering too often may be the problem.
Agaves require little attention to thrive. Water the plant every 4-5 days for the first month or two. After established, agaves need only be watered 2-3 times a month in summer, or more if you’re in a low desert location.
Fill in the soil around the sides of the existing root system and gently compact it to prop the plant into its desired position. Once its set, gently water the plant to further compact the soil and stimulate the roots. After the initial watering always allow your agave to dry out completely between waterings.
