Source: Syainika Sastra of Rudradeva with English Translation (art)

Sūcita (सूचित) refers to the “indication (of motion)” (of wheat and other standing crops), according to the Śyainika-śāstra: a Sanskrit treatise dealing with the divisions and benefits of Hunting and Hawking, written by Rājā Rudradeva (or Candradeva) in possibly the 13th century.—Accordingly, “Hunting by watching the motion of standing crops is that in which animals are killed by the indication (sūcita) of the motion [spandanāmātrasūcitāḥ] of wheat and other standing crops in which they hide themselves. In Sanskrit it is named Yāvaśī. This is ‘ played’ by two or three horsemen who are expert archers. It is successful, if the advance is slow and the motion of standing crops carefully observed. It doesn’t produce much fatigue, but it produces great excitement”.
