Will my sunflower plants recover from wind damage?

Asked August 2, 2015, 7:17 PM EDT

We have 14 acres of sunflower plants. From pictures, the sunflowers are down as if wind damaged. Will the sunflowers continue to grow normally?

They will if the roots are still attached to the ground, but yields will be reduced. If the roots are exposed then the plant may die off.
