The pilot was conducting the last run of a spraying operation. Because of the wind conditions the aircraft was displaced over the boundary fence line to achieve the desired spray coverage. The pilot was distracted by a radio call and the right mainwheel struck a fence post. Although the gear leg was torn off the pilot retained control of the aircraft and subsequently carried out a successful emergency landing at his normal base of operations.
