Pear Trees

The last two years my pear trees have quit blooming. I'm quite good on pruning and most things related to fruit trees. But any idea WHY trees would just quit producing. These are in South Carolina on very sandy soil. I'm sorta thinking that the nutrients have leached out of the ground and am considering injecting around tree with triple phosphate. I know that this does work well on flowering plants like Wisteria and other flowering bushes.
Thanks for any wisdom, experience or remedies.

We all are merely gleaners from the masters who were here before us.

1) Pruned off primary spur producing wood
2) Chilling requirement not met
3) Extreme environmental conditions during delayed dormancy and bloom season
4) Weak and/or diseased trees
