Asked June 11, 2018, 1:59 PM EDT

I have 2 row of 6 kinds of blackberry bushes...I have had them for 3/4 years now. The last year they did not produce like they were/ Now I have just discovered MUMMY BERRY disease is the culprit. I have read many articles on line about how to treat it. No one has mentioned exact products to use,,,brandwise...can you? I know what i have to do with the soil and all but what are the exact names of products and who makes them. Thank you, Brady---in North Carolina
