harvest
  ۱) خرمن؛ ۲) خرمن کردن، ~ برداشتن   
1) xarman; 2) xarman kardan, ~ bardâštan

Fr.: 1) moisson, récolte; 2) récolter

1b) (Agriculture) the crop itself or the yield from it in a single growing season.
2) To gather or reap (a ripened crop) from (the place where it has been growing) (TheFreeDictionary).

M.E. hervest, from O.E. hærfest "autumn;" cognate with Du. herfst, Ger. Herbst "autumn"); PIE *(s)kerp- "to gather, pluck, harvest," from *(s)ker- "to cut" (cf. Skt. krpāna- "sword, knife;" Gk. karpos "fruit;" L. carpere "to cut, divide, pluck;" Av. karət- "to cut," Mod.Pers. kârd "knife," as below).

Xarman "harvest; piled-up reaped corn," Qâyeni dialect xerma- "harvest;" Tabari kar "harvest" (karkub "corn-thresher"). Xarman may ultimately derive from Proto-Iranian *kartman-, from *kart- "to cut," cf. Av. karət- "to cut" (Skt. kart- "to cut"), karəta- "knife;" Mid.Pers. kârt "knife;" Mod.Pers. kârd + -man a common suffix (as in Av. asman "stone, sky;" rasman- "column, rank;" nāman- "name;" taoxman- "seed").
