After observing the windsock and assessing that the crosswind condition were acceptable, the pilot completed a normal approach and landing. As the aircraft slowed the aircraft began to veer to the left and, although the pilot applied right rudder, he was unable to stop the turn. The left main wheel entered a depression at the edge of the runway causing the aircraft to spin the left, and it came to rest in a ploughed field adjacent to the runway. The pilot attributed the incident to the tail of the aircraft remaining high for longer than normal after landing, and the insufficient use of right rudder to correct the turn ensuing turn.
