Starchy crops are crops that contain starch which is the main source of dietary energy for the world’s population. Starchy crops include rice, sweet potato, cassava, soybean, corn, wheat and more. Plant tissue culture offers many advantages including the regeneration of whole plants from plant cells that have been genetically modified, the production of medicinal compounds and a convenient tool for molecular levels studies. The purpose of this paper is to review the latest progress in cell suspension culture for starchy crops. Different types of starchy crops require different parameters for the optimum growth rate which depends on the purpose of establishing them. The main parameters that affect the growth of cell suspension culture are the type of media used and growth conditions such as inoculum size and agitation rate. The procedures for establishing cell suspension culture are generally similar for all types of plants. As of now, reports on cell suspension cultures for starchy crops focus more on the regeneration of plants and the transformation of plant cells for enhancing plant traits. In conclusion, the culture parameters for starchy crop cell suspension growth differed based on its application and purpose.
