Abstract/Contents:Provides information through a question and answer format regarding generic products available in the turf market. Suggests that the increasing numbers of these products "will ultimately create more flexibility and more choice for superintendents". Discusses patents and the types of companies that sell generic and post-patent products, including Gowan, Riverdale, Nufarm, Griffin, and Agriliance. Offers suggestions for choosing a generic product when several similar ones are available. Recommends selecting a standard, verifying active ingredient identity, assessing the company that is selling the product, asking for efficacy data, reviewing efficacy data carefully, understanding a bit about statistics and experimental design, and testing the product yourself.
