Ratoon – Use This Word

I chose ratoon from all the words @Ghostwriter offered. Ratoon is a new shoot or sprout that comes up from a crop plant. The image is from Wiki showing new shoots coming up in a rice field. From this word, the verb is ratooning which is when harvesting cutting most of the above-ground portion of the crop plant but leaving the roots  and the growing shoot so a new fresh crop can grow the following season,
