"Reaps" in context

Reaps refer to a tool used in farming or horticulture to cut cereal grasses, remove weeds, and harvest crops. It is a sharp-edged blade connected to a long handle, and is typically used to cut and collect seed-bearing heads or stalks of grain. The reaping process can help farmers avoid losing a large portion of crop to pests and disease. Reaping is traditionally done manually by a worker who swings the tool in a steady rhythm to cut and collect the crop. In more modern times, mechanized reaping machines are used, usually powered by an electrical motor or diesel engine.
