Welcome to Crop Tailor

CropTailor is a biotech company specialized in oat. CropTailor’s business idea is to develop new niche oat varieties with enhanced agricultural and health benefitting properties. Our vision is to increase oat cultivation in Sweden for the benefit of both the environment and Swedish farmers and Export industry.

Using Crop Tailors proprietary technology, new oat varieties will be produced with higher precision and in a shorter time than traditional breeding companies. CropTailor will together with future business partners develop additional varieties tailored for the partner’s needs. 

Moreover, the oat varieties will not be defined as GMOs, which greatly simplifies their commercialization.

Business Idea

By taking advantage of mutagenesis, advanced biochemistry and genomic tools, new niche oat varieties with enhanced agronomic- and/or health promoting properties will be developed.


The company is located at the Chemistry Center at Lund University. The address is Pure and Applied Biochemistry, Naturvetarvägen 16, 221 00 Lund.
