There can be lots of causes fro brown spots on leaves. Most often the brown spots are caused by the death of cells in the leaves. This could be caused by insect feeding or by disease. Diseases can often be determined by the size and shape of the brown spots. Injury from sprays or other chemicals such as salts can also cause spotting.
