Resumo:  Abstract: Given the large territorial extension and the high social and economic diversity, Brazil has a remarkable variability in agricultural cropping systems. The description and the understanding of this variability is fundamental for proposing research gaps, technology transfer and appropriate public policies for the sector. Sugarcane is used for several purposes on farms, such as household consumption, energy and sugar production, and forage production. Data collected during the 2006 agricultural census, accomplished by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE), shows that 192,931 farms (3.7% of Brazilian farms) reported having grown sugarcane in 2006. This paper addresses the classification and characterization of the sugarcane producing municipalities in Brazil, using techniques of multivariate statistical analysis (factor and cluster analysis). The 41 variables used were created from the data collected by the 2006 agricultural census, covering 3,576 municipalities. Data went through a sugarcane filter, and was then regrouped by municipality. Those variables gather socioeconomic and technological information on the farms, such as land usage, harvested area, production goal, productivity, input usage, use of industrial wastes, irrigation, source of producer?s income, percentage of the income that comes from sugarcane, family or conventional farming, size of herds, distance from the farms to sugar mills, among the most important. Analyses identified 9 different groups of sugarcane production in the municipalities, remarking large variability of sugarcane sector in Brazil, and the clear spatial differences of production and technology use in the territory. The results of the statistical analysis and the characteristics of the groups were discussed among scholars specialized in sugarcane research and were considered coherent with Brazilian reality.
