Poke right inside seedcase (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

prod

Here is my best explanation:

'poke' is the definition.

('prod' can be a synonym of 'poke')

'right inside seedcase' is the subsidiary indication.

'right' becomes 'r' (common abbreviation).

'inside' indicates putting letters inside.

'seedcase' becomes 'pod' ('pod' can be a synonym of 'seedcase').

'r' going inside 'pod' is 'prod'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for prod that I've seen before include "Poke, stimulate into action", "Poke - remind", "Poke, jab, nudge", "Poke with stiff finger to urge", "Jab, poke", "Provide stimulation", "Goad, stimulate into action", "Poke with a stick", "Stimulus" and "Motivate; jab".)
