The pilot reported the wind was from the south, and that he had to use a 10 degree wind correction while on final. He stated the landing roll was straight for about 800 feet. After the airplane got out from behind several large grain elevators, the crosswind hit the airplane. The airplane skidded off the north side of the runway. The landing gear sank in the soft dirt of a farmer's field, and the airplane went up on its nose. The local police department reported the wind was from the south at 25-30 knots all day.
