Runcation Definition

1855 July, The Farmer's magazine,
The object of this harrowing or raking was simply in order that the weeds might be more easily eradicated ; but it is a question whether the good it did in facilitating the "runcation" (hand-weeding) was greater than the injury it inflicted by bruising and tearing the corn.
1865, William Smith (edit), A concise dictionary of the Bible,
Even swine have been known so to feed ; and, further, by their constant runcation among whatever lies on the ground, suggest impurity, even if they were not generally foul feeders.
