Q.My Rasberry Bushes Seem Healthy But Few New Growth. Any Reason?
Usually I have to contain the spread. I note from the dead stems that the roots contain a white fungus. Might this be the cause, and if so what’s the solution?

Unfortunately, your photo did not come through. I will be unable to assess the damage. Many fungi have associations with roots. Some are beneficial and some are not.
Most fungi that are harmful to this plant will exhibit other characteristics, though, such as black or brow spotting, rotting fruit, etc. Many white rot fungi are only "cleaning up" after another infection. They will make use of the dead plant material left by another infection.
Most infections are caused by soils that remain too wet for too long without a period to dry out. If this is not a factor that you can control, then you will need to find a fungicide to combat it.
