I have been seeing this for several years with my Arapaho blackberries. I have several other varieties planted and they are not doing this.  
The cane will get to about 12 to 18 inches in height and just wilt.  
I am irrigating and there is moisture in the soil.

This is difficult, as you can see from this article my work has been inconclusive as well. Obviously, water is deficient at the tip, but as to what is the cause of the issue is not known.  
Best to take Dr. Clark's advice and not plant this, it must be something inherent to the variety.
