To explore the effects of stem structure on biomass, yield and economic coefficient of corn, the grey relation analysis, correlation analysis and path analysis were used to analyze the relationship of 5 agronomic traits of corn (Jing Hua No. 8), which conducted in 2015 at National Precision Agriculture Research Station. The results show that, stem height has closely related with biomass, base stem diameter direct influence is 0.68, which is the largest influence on yield, however, top stem
