Cyanobacteria are potential organisms, which are used as food, feed and fuel. The unique characters of cyanobacteria include short generation times, their ubiquitous presence and efficient nitrogen fixing potential. Cyanobacteria are unique organisms performing photosynthesis, bioremediation of wastewater, high biomass and biofuel productions etc. They are also used in the treatment of industrial and domestic wastewaters for the utilization or removal of ammonia, phosphates and other heavy metals (Cr, Pb, Co, Cu, Zn). Biomasses of cyanobacteria are used as biofertilizers for the improvement of nutrient or mineral status and water-holding capacity of the soil. The secondary metabolites of cyanobacteria are used in pharmaceuticals, nutraceutical and chemical industries. In the industrial sector, value-added products from cyanobacteria such as pigments, enzymes and exopolysaccharides are being produced in large scales for biomedical and health applications. Age-old applications of cyanobacteria in agroecosystems as biofertilizers (Anabaena sp; Nostoc sp.) and in industrial sectors as food products (Spirulina) have motivated the researchers to come up with much more specific applications of cyanobacteria both in agricultural and in industrial sectors. Therefore, considering the effectiveness and efficiency of cyanobacteria, the present review has enlisted the standout qualities of cyanobacteria and their potential applications in agricultural and industrial sectors for the benefit of human beings and environment. © 2019, Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany, part of Springer Nature.
