If you omit this step, then probably your program will run (because it has data to compute on) but it will generate wrong answers.
If you have the Fortran source code (of any routine) then on some platforms you may use compiler directives specifying that the Fortran compiler must use row wise storage. Some platforms support these directives. However watch out with this if you call the same routine from another Fortran routine/program.
