Fig tree leaf going brown

Fig    None Given

My plant looks great, its even growing buds all over but I noticed that some leaves are turning brow after spraying my tomato plant next to it with my neem and soap mix. is this the reason?

Did any of the soap and neem mix get onto the fig plant?
about 5 years ago.

If the neem and soap mixture got on to that particular leaf then I would say, yes, it could be the cause. The other leaves on the plant look very healthy - are there any others that are turning color like the one in the images? If not, I suspect the plant will be okay but keep an eye out for any others starting to change color which could be an indication of a nutrient deficiency or even over-fertilizing. Have you fed this plant recently?
