The lack of positive results in searches for supersymmetric (SUSY) particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and in direct searches forWeakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) in the underground experiments may hint to a super-high energy scale of SUSY phenomena beyond the reach of direct experimental probes. At such scales the supergravity models based on Starobinsky inflation can provide the mechanisms for both inflation and superheavy dark matter. However, it makes the indirect methods the only way of testing the SUSY models, so that cosmological probes acquire the special role in this context. Such probes can rely on the nontrivial effects of SUSY physics in the early Universe, which are all model-dependent and thus can provide discrimination of the models and their parameters. The nonstandard cosmological features like Primordial Black Holes (PBHs) or antimatter domains in a baryon-asymmetric universe are discussed as possible probes for high energy scale SUSY physics.
