Yield productivity of staple crops must be increased at least 50% by 2050, in order to feed the world population which is expected to reach 90 billions. Photosynthetic carbon assimilation and carbohydrate metabolism leading to the production of starch would be the final frontier to quest for new sources of technology enabling such a drastic increase of crop productivity. In this review, attempts to genetically engineer plant photosynthetic carbon reduction cycle and metabolic pathways to increase starch production are introduced.
