After-grass. The second crop, or grass which springs up after mowing; or grassmath that is cut after some kinds ofcorn. " In catting rowen, or second crops of grass," says Mr. Loudon, " more attention will be requisite than in the first, as the crops are mostly much lighter and more difficult to be cut, the scythe being apt to rise and slip through the grass without cutting it fairly, except when in the hands of an expert workman."
