The aircraft was being repositioned to base after an aerial application operation. The pilot reported that on downwind leg the pre-landing check revealed a soft left brake. He pumped up pressure by engaging the park brake and working the brake pedal. Due to concentrating on the other pre-landing checks and on flying the aircraft he inadvertently left the park brake on. On touchdown the aircraft pulled to the left pitched forward onto the nose and came to rest inverted.
