cucumber die off

Asked April 15, 2018, 8:11 PM EDT

for the last few years, my cucumber plants start off well and then become stunted and die off. an extension agent said it might be an organism which burrows into the lower stem and causes the fluids in the stem to thicken so nutrients can not reach the rest of the plant. does this sound correct, what causes this, and is there anything that can be done to stop it.
