The 2,400-hour commerical pilot was applying chemicals to agricultural fields when the single-engine agricultural airplane collided with the ground. There were no reported eye-witnesses to the accident and no distress calls were received from the aircraft. The FAA inspector, who responded to the accident site, confirmed that ground scars and damage sustained by the left wing were consistent with ground impact in a left wing low attitude. The left wing tip separated at the initial point of impact and the main fuselage came to rest near a private residence in a wooded area and was consumed by post impact fire. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed throughout the area at the time of the accident.

Probable Cause: The pilot's failure to maintain clearance with the ground during an aerial application flight.
