Applied DNA Sciences has received and shipped a US$ 1.15 million order in its fiscal 2018 third quarter that ended on 30 June 2018 to tag cotton in the upcoming 2018/2019 ginning season. The order for the company’s SigNature T platform technology will be used to tag, test and track three US cotton varietals, PimaAcala and Delta.

“We are pleased that ongoing efforts to build the market for tagged, traceable and sustainable cotton are converting into new orders across all three main US varietals, reflecting recurring use of tagged cotton across the home textile category,” said Dr James A. Hayward, President and CEO of Applied DNA.
