Der Begriff "ear" bezeichnet den Fruchtstand, also den Maiskolben.
Und "ear shoots" sind dann also die ersten Ansätze, die sich aus den weiblichen Blüten bilden, und von denen sich meist nur die obersten 2 zu erntefähigen Kolben entwickeln. (Details siehe Link)

Vielleicht gibt es noch einen Fachbegriff, aber ich denke "Kolbenansatz" sollte eigentlich zumindest der Sache nach stimmen.
