Excerpt from Binder Twine Industry

Yet, if it were not for the industry of those two widely separated nations, the farmers of this rich country would still be obliged to bind their grain with old-fashioned wire. In fact, the problem of twine was the problem of successful binding for years after the self-binder was an established fact.

It took many years and thousands of dollars to eliminate this primary drawback to the early grain growers of the country. One manufacturer alone spent trying to make twine out of grass, using paper as a substitute, and on straw, all in the end to be discarded as unsatisfactory. Then, after searching the world with a close-tooth rake, as it were, it was found that two fibres could be made to do the work - manila and sisal. The manila long, soft and even - had generally been used in multiple strands for making cable and cordage; while the sisal - strong, pliable and smooth - was found to lend itself perfectly to the manufacture of a single-strand cord, such as the self-binder necessitated.
