The purpose of this study was to evaluate sugarcane genotypes for the trait tons of sugar per hectare (TSH), stratifying five production environments in the state of Paraná. The performance of 20 genotypes and 2 standard cultivars was analyzed in three consecutive growing seasons by the statistical methods AMMI and GGE Biplot. The GGE Biplot grouped the locations into two mega-environments and indicated the best-performing genotypes for each one, facilitating the selection of superior genotypes. Another advantage of GGEBiplot is the definition of an ideal genotype (G) and environment (E), serving as reference for the evaluation of genotypes and choice of environments with greater GE interaction. Both models indicated RB006970, RB855156 and RB855453 as the genotypes with highest TSH and São Pedro do Ivai as the environment with the greatest GE interaction. Both approaches explained a high percentage of the sum of squares, with a slight advantage of AMMI over GGE Biplot analysis
