A small thermonuclear device should do the job nicely...
Seriously, assuming you want the berry canes gone as well as the P.I., I would
say that this sounds like a job for Round-up (glyphosate). You may need
several applications. As much as I hate to recommend chemical herbicides, I
would really hate to try and get rid of such a nasty mix by hand, and plowing
it is just going to make propagules.
