Su control hasta la fecha, es mediante la aplicación de fungicidas, sin embargo, hoy en día se está en la búsqueda de implementar sistemas alternativos de control, y el ácido salicílico surge como un posible candidato para el tratamiento de dicha enfermedad.

A partir del tratamiento de aguas residuales urbanas se obtienen efluentes y biosólidos potencialmente utilizables como fuente de agua para riego y nutrientes. Un cultivo de ajo blanco se realizó en Río Cuarto (Córdoba), regado por goteo utilizando efluentes urbanos e incorporando como abono biosólidos y fertilización química. Para evaluar rendimiento y calidad sanitaria se efectuó una plantación en marzo, en un diseño en bloques completos al azar, con cinco tratamientos y cuatro repeticiones.
