Blackberry cane problem

One of my blackberries has rust colored circles on the canes, very heavy in some places. Looks to be orange felt. Anyone else have this, is there a way to get ride of it?

Your image doesn't seem to work but sounds like you are describing orange rust. Just look it up on Google for more info. I think you have to destroy infected plants.

I remember MrsG had some orange rust on her raspberries, and brambles are brambles it was treatable, but forgot what is best to use? Maybe she will chime in?

RE: Blackberry cane problem

Wow, good job, you found the problem yourself! I would use copper while dormant. And remove the canes after fruiting ASAP.

RE: Blackberry cane problem

Good catch! I wonder if a lime sulfur spray would allow control it? I'm going to have to use a lime sulfur spray this year on a least a few of my berry plants that keep getting fungal infestations. Boysenberries tend to be about the worst afflicted in my garden.
