I've a fair few raspberry mature canes. This years crop is good so far but I notice some canes still with fruit on them are wilting and seem to be dying. Each of the canes in distress has a healthy(so far) looking new cane growing from same base. Nothing new to these plants or their situation and they're not dried out or excessively wet. Adjacent loganberries are fruiting vigourously. I'll post a few photos tomorrow.

Anybody else experiencing similar problems ?
Thanks Sporty

A few pictures of problem developing, you can see that new canes from same plants are doing fine. Could it just be the extraordinary heat - temperature around 27 during last few days ??

Thanks to all in advance for suggestions Sporty

This is exactly what happen to mine. Sections of up 2 meters die off . Whats the solution to this.
Also now ground cover with creeping buttercup weed. Can I spray with roundup to clean up.

I can see a bit of botrytis. As long as this year's growth looks healthy, I'd say that the fruiting canes are following their natural cycle, and dying back after fruiting. Otherwise, I'd check around the roots (gently) for soil pests like leatherjackets, vine weevils, or anything that will attack the roots.

it is quite normal for raspberry canes that have borne fruit to die back like that. These canes are usually cut out in the Autumn to make room for the new canes that have emerged and that will fruit next year. To test if they are old or new canes bend them over and the old canes will snap off easily, a very easy way of pruning.
if there are too many canes present then cut out the weaker ones.
