The pilot reported that, during the takeoff roll for an agricultural flight, the airplane drifted left of the runway center, and the left wing and spray boom encountered tall grass. Subsequently, the airplane spun about 270°.
The airplane sustained substantial damage to both wings and the fuselage.
The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.
The pilot reported in the Operator/Owner Safety Recommendation section of NTSB Form 6120.1 that the tall grass next to the runway “will be maintained shorter.”

Probable Cause: The pilot’s failure to maintain directional control during the takeoff roll, which resulted in the airplane contacting tall grass.
