Fig tree leaf attack

Asked July 27, 2019, 7:45 AM EDT

Hi, my fig tree grows weak and the leaves develop spots, then turn yellow and die off. I thought this was fig rust at first but the spots are not blistering and the problem begins as soon as the tree starts to grow in spring. (My understanding is that fig rust develops in late summer or fall.) Please help.
