You could probably maintain such a height from the ground with the snipper on a pole pruner, though.

The species with which I am familiar have stems flexible enough for their tips to be bent almost down to ground level. The algorithm should now be easy to see.

For each culm which is too high, estimate by how much, find out which one it is near the ground, bend it down and snip off the excess.

Works for me.
