Narrative:The 18,000-hour commercial pilot of an agricultural aerial application airplane departed a private airstrip at approximately 0855, with the airplane filled with 200 gallons of fuel, en-route to his job site. The pilot started his spraying runs and during a "steep climbing left turn," the engine lost power. The pilot lowered the wing flaps and turned the airplane into the wind; however, and after determining there were "obstacles" in his landing path, he continued the turn towards the west which resulted in landing with a quartering tailwind. The airplane stalled just above the ground, impacting the right gear and wing tip. The airplane came to rest in the upright position in a plowed field. The reason for the reported loss of engine power could not be determined.
