Everyone of them goes into a state of decline & branches gradually die back. 
I tend to see the yellow leaves on the bushes later in the season after they 
are done fruiting..."

    My best guess is that either there is something in your soil that your 
Nankings don't like OR there is a deficiency.  Get a plant tissue analysis!
    I had blackberry leaves that got all scrunched up so I gathered up a 
baggie full of them and sent it off to K Ag Laboratories for analysis.  The 
results came back saying the soil was deficient of copper.  So I added a 
smidgeon of copper and solved the problem.  Perhaps A & L Laboratories do 
the same work; I don't know, you'd have to check.  A & L charges close to 
half of what K Ag charges for soils tests.
