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,

  1. I have also picked this word from the list. You explained it well Sandra! I did not know the word until I looked it up the other day and realized I have one. So my post is what I thought was a mistake in ratooning ended up by doing the right thing, and hopefully I will see pineapples this year. I did not know that rice could be done this way. Interesting, and thank you for the extra information I didn’t know! 😉
