It looks very much like wind lodging to me. Plants need a correct balance of nitrogen, potassium and silica for rigidness of cell wall and stems. When they grow too tall with the wrong nutrient balance, they are more likely to lodge with strong winds. Maybe the pattern we're seeing is just an unbalance of nutrients in the soil. Wind lodging is pretty common to happen.

Wow just awesome S & F
I want to know if the stalks that were laid down are broken or not. Are they still alive? I think they are..that's a great sign
They say the stalks were pinned to the ground, not broken. Awesome!!!!edit on 26-5-2011 by Swills because: (no reason given)

Remind me of this:
....which is called "Blé versé" in French, don't know how to translate it, maybe by "Poured down wheat".
This is a natural phenomenon due to rain and problem with stems.
