The pilot was spraying a 120 acre field of wheat. When the main area was finished the pilot started clean up runs around trees and the fence. One fence line was in the form of a vee and a clean up run was made along this with the intention of ruddering the aircraft around at the bend in the fence. As this was done the left wheel contacted the fence and the pilot was unable to stop the aircraft hitting the ground and sliding to a stop.
