Narrative:The pilot departed from a private airstrip for a local aerial application flight. Shortly after takeoff, the engine experienced a loss of power and the pilot elected to turn towards a field and perform a forced landing. During the landing, the airplane received major structural damage. A postaccident examination of the engine revealed that a cylinder on the radial engine was cracked, resulting in the loss of engine power. No other anomalies with the airplane were found.
