One of the things I have noticed is that if there is a very strong wind, there seems to be fewer bugs/mosquitoes. Have any farmers who try not to use pesticide tried using high winds as a means of pest reduction? If bugs can’t land, they probably can’t lay eggs. If birds are feeding on crops, could they navigate through high winds? Would a plant evolve enough to hang onto its leaves through high winds?
Take a look at palm trees. They have evolved to be able to withstand hurricane forces. They have a great root network, their trunks are limbless, they can bend and their foliage is on top.
Would this wind change the shapes of the plants? Probably.
