Need some help identifying this disease or fungus on my blackberry. Leave's edges started getting soft at first and with the sunlight they got crunchy and brown, also started to curl up. Check the pics, it's my first time with blackberries so I don't know what to do.

I won't say it's not a disease, but my first impression from the pictures is it could be symptoms of over fertilizing.

It could be, if that's the case what should I do to correct it?

The only thing I know to do with container plants that have been over fertilized is to flush them with water.

diseases of blackberries

That should help you in the future with identifying a disease.

I have to concur with James, that looks like far to much fertilizer.
The choices for correcting that situation are multiple flushing with water or repotting with new soil (in a larger container).
