Smut spores survive in the soil for many years, and even long crop rotations may not reduce disease incidence. In trial since 2009, penflufen, a powerful active ingredient, has shown consistent better control over onion smut than comparable active ingredients. EverGol® Prime is now homologated in Canada.
