Marks plants to be harvested by colonists assigned to Plant cut. Characters assigned to Grow also harvest but with the intention of clearing the area to plant new crops. Harvesting of plants provides edibles such as agave, berries, rice, potatoes, corn, haygrass, and processable herbs like smokeleaf, psychoid leaves, hops, healroot and devilstrand. Plants that haven't borne produce will be destroyed in the process.
Harvest is also a term used in the medical field, meaning to remove a body organ from a donor, usually with intent to transplant the organ to another patient. Harvestable organs in-game include: heart, lungs, kidney and livers.
Unskilled or injured characters can fail at harvesting, destroying the harvest.
