I think you can stop having problems with it but geting it
to go away for ever is like getting the cold virus to stop
showing up.  Some folks almost never get colds but the
bugger is almost always around looking for sweet conditions
to grow.

It will beat back the current crop but won't solve the
problem that allowed it grow in the first place.  Treat
problems not symptoms if you can.  Check your nutirent
balances.  I'll bet K or P is out of whack or needs more.
