Codon usage tables in plants have been published.  

Check out:

Codon Usage Tabulated from the GenBank Genetic Sequence Data, Nucleic Acids
Research 20, Supplement 2111-2118, 1992

The Plant Molecualr Biology LabFax contains a table as well ed RRD Croy,
pub by Bios Scientific Publishers Academic Press, 1993, ISBN 0121983706.

I suspect that there are probably newer compilations as well.
