I always thought that it was the hyenas causing it because they ate everything!!

The Hyenas definitely were a factor in what happened.

But If the Hyenas ate everything, then the vegetation would grow more cause there are no herbivores to eat the vegetation

Its to show just how awful a leader Scar was.

And again this is is shown in The Lion Guard where he can’t even kill a few baby animals, albeit he’s now in spoopy ghost form.

With no rain to water the vegetation and no Herbivores to fertilize it the vegetation did not survive the drought.

Not to defend Scar or show any kind of disrespect to The Lion Guard (as they are a very capable team), Scar has less capable Henchmen to work with this time around, and said Henchmen have even less capable underlings working for them.

Strictly speaking, while the Lion Guard is canon, the Pride Lands are shown to be dead in the original movie due to Scar's reign, about twenty years before The Lion Guard was a thing. Is it really applicable to use TLG in answering this question?

More properly on-topic, there is a way for a lack of herbivores to translate into the death of plantlife. While I am not sure how it will work on dry land, this has happened and is a real problem in the seas: When plantlife is able to grow without constraint, it is possible for the plants to use up all the nutrients in the soil, thus creating a period of rapid plant growth followed by a massive die off.

In oceans, this is known as a Dead Zone, where "plant" life, in the form of an algae bloom, leaves large areas devoid of other life because of a lack of food. For that matter, about it happening on dry land: the Dust Bowl and similar events are caused by mass farming leading to this very problem.

To debunk my own post now, as fare as I can tell, for dry land, it usually takes a rather long time, as in number of decades, for this effect to go into action. I don't see it as being the reason why the Pride Lands bought it under the very brief rule of Scar.
