Raspberry canes -leaves turning brown and crispy

Just had a look at the row of raspberry canes and everyone has brown and crispy leaves, anyone have any ideas what this is and can it be cured.

    Are they newly planted? It has not rained here in four weeks, after the floods of February. Try  feeling the ground aroundthem and water if necessary.

    Agree with @fidgetbones - probably dry.

    I have newly transplanted raspberries and have been watering them every other day as it is both sunny and windy here and that can be very drying for fresh new foliage, even on established plants.

    If they’re autumn harvest then shouldn’t they be cut to the ground in March?

    Thank you all. It could be the dry weather not had rain for some time. Forgot to cut them down, too late now?

    No but do give them a good drink.
