The objective of this work is to study the leaf area and biomass production of 4 sugarcane varieties in cane plant cycles, first and second regrowth. The experiment was conducted at Fazenda Jequiá in the state of Alagoas, Brazil. A randomized block design with 5 replications was used. The treatments were 4 cultivars: RB92579, SP813250, RB867515 and VAT90212. The length and width of the sheet + 3 were determined as well as the following parameters; the number of tillers per square meter, the

The productivity of shoot dry biomass was determined at the time of cane maturity in 3 cycles. Univariate and multivariate analyses were performed. The larger leaf area index of 4.46 m 2 m -2 was observed for RB92579 in plant cane cycle. The dry biomass yield was not influenced by varieties having average values of 47, 41 and 31 t ha -1 in the sugarcane plant cycles in the first and second regrowth, respectively. The principal component analysis enabled us to identify from Current Population Survey (CPs) variance which component can contribute to the explanation of the data.
