Louis Dreyfus Company, one of the world’s largest agricultural commodity merchants, has installed a cotton traceability system at its Moree gin in Australia to tag, test and track pure HomeGrown Australian cotton.

The cotton will be molecularly tagged, tested and tracked from source to shelf using Applied DNA Sciences’ SigNature T cotton system, demonstrating traceability along the value chain. It will also support industry efforts to help Australian cotton become more competitive and sustainable.
