help, gray mold in sweet cherry tree

Lewiston, NY(Zone 6a)

It just stopped raining and darn it but again this year I've got gray mold on my sweet cherries. I had it last year and lost the whole crop, so I cleaned and cut and pick' up everything (sanitation) did my dorment oils. did copper spray (Bordeaux mix), and sulfer lime...... and its back again. I cut the whole center out of the trees to get better air circulation...
I'm at a loss. I cant buy to 'good' fungicides and all the farmers around here grow sour/tart cherries and they dont have this problem. I'm going to call my county agent (cornell co-op) and see if he can help.... but.... anyone out there ever been able to fix this problem?
