[NAFEX] Rasberries

Are the raspberries planted in a wet area?  It sounds a lot like root rot that most raspberries are subject to.  Many people build a raised bed area to plant their raspberries in our area.  We've had to do that too.  If it is not a wet area then I am not familiar with it.

  I have a strange situation.  I planted a red rasberry last year and it 
  seems fine.  This year it put on flowers and started to 'berry-up' but 
  then one day I went out to check on it, and noticed that the entire 
  flower stem were dead, dead, dead.  The plant is perfectly fine and is 
  putting on next years shoots, but everything on the flower/berry ends died.

  I thought this was an isolated instance.  However I was out gathering 
  wild blackberries and notice I have one or two patches out there in the 
  field with the same exact symptoms.  Anybody have any clues about this?  
  I was thinking maybe rain/water stress?  Whatever it is it affects Rubus 
  for sure.
