Barr as in "tips" maybe? This is a long stretch of a translation for most learners. Other than to insert a local idiomatic usage, it would be better to avoid.

Barr has more than one meaning, and “crop” is one of them. Since this is an English-to-Irish exercise, “crops” → barra isn’t a long stretch.
