Agriculture / corn growing
Italian term or phrase: stramatura
From a text on a corn crop. This doesn't seem to be anything to do with over ripening and I'm not clear what it refers to unless it is a synonym for the trimming referred to in cimatura:

Quando le barbe della spiga tendevano ad annerire si praticava la cimatura o stramatura con il taglio dello stelo sopra le spighe, poi si procedeva alla sfogliatura.

Thanks in advance.
