I seem to have gotten white rot/fungus tha affects most onion varieties except spring onions- they will get it but very late on...does anyone know of a vigorous type of ordinary brown or red onion that might stave it off until I can harvest? Thanks.

try spraying regularly with copper, also good for rust.

Ring your local agricultural or agric company department about the fungus.
