Plano is the birthplace of the Reaper. In July, 1831, Cyrus Hall McCormick invented the mechanical reaper, known as the Plano Harvester. The Plano Harvester combined all the steps that earlier harvesting machines had . His time-saving invention allowed farmers to more than double their crop size and spurred innovations in farm machinery.
