Can you please advise me of the most appropriate spray to use on my raspberry plants to control/eliminate rust

I have noticed orange rust spots on some of my raspberry leaves. I have removed the affected leaves but would like to apply a spray to control/eliminate the rust from affecting the fruit. What spray do you recommend ?

Fruit and Citrus • Diseases

Yellow rust typically attacks raspberries. It's usually a cosmetic issue, but can become serious and cause defoliation during periods of prolonged wet weather.

We do not currently have a suitable control for rust on raspberries. The best thing to do is to remove as much of the affected growth - sterilising the secateurs between cuts - and binning the diseased foliage.

Give the canes a good feed with a complete fertiliser, like Yates Thrive Natural Citrus & Fruit Organic Based Pelletised Fertiliser to help it recover from the attack.
