Freeze damage this past weekend likely impacted corn and soybeans differently, but analysts believe true yield reports will not be available until January, reports AGWeb.

Alan Suderman of INTL FCStone estimates soybean yield losses between 30 million to 50 million bushels and corn yield losses between 300 million to 400 million bushels.

However, corn yield losses could rise as high as 600 million to 700 million bushels.

Soybeans may have lower yield losses than corn because sensitivity to day length caused them to rush to maturity.
