German term or phrase: Wiederaustrieb
The farmers again. I understand it but do not know the botanic word. They are still talking about herbicides and Quecke. Here is the context: „Seit ein, zwei Jahren, seit die anderen Mittel so günstig geworden sind, nehmen wir das Roundup Ultra auch nicht mehr. Entscheidend ist ja die Wirkung später, wenn der WIEDERAUSTRIEB eingesetzt hat. Und da meine ich, daß alle gleich gut oder gleich schlecht sind.“

regermination


Explanation:
Germination seems to me to be a good match for Austrieb, thus regermination for Wiederaustrieb.
Cheerio,
P.S. Don't use everything a book says, use your judgement, too.

regrowth from the roots


Explanation:
Wiederaustrieb implies there is a portion of the plant, such as the root still in the soil, and it regrows from that portion. Germination would imply growing from seeds, so regermination is nonsene - a seed grows only once.
Quecken are definitely the kind of plants that would regrow from whatever portion of the plant left.
