I suspect the Empress Wave. Agent of the Imperium has it driving even "non-thinking" plants insane by having them grow and die at the wrong times year and outright killing or driving non-psions and creatures insane. The insane survivors go on ramages warring and destroying technology and each other.

Tech decline AND ecological disaster. Gonna take a long time to recover.
