Just after lift off from a touch and go landing while climbing through 150' AGL I experienced a partial power loss apparently from carburetor ice. To avoid a possible engine failure over a populated area straight ahead, I turned right and executed a normal landing in a plowed field just adjacent to the airport boundary with no further problem. Callback conversation with reporter revealed following information. Reporter said that he landed in a plowed field just off the airport. The aircraft was not damaged in any way during the precautionary landing but there was slight damage to one wing tip as they taxied the aircraft back onto the airport property. No problems found with engine.

Title: SMA SUFFERED POWER LOSS AND MADE PRECAUTIONARY OFF ARPT LNDG.
Narrative: JUST AFTER LIFT OFF FROM A TOUCH AND GO LNDG WHILE CLBING THROUGH 150' AGL I EXPERIENCED A PARTIAL PWR LOSS APPARENTLY FROM CARB ICE. TO AVOID A POSSIBLE ENG FAILURE OVER A POPULATED AREA STRAIGHT AHEAD, I TURNED R AND EXECUTED A NORMAL LNDG IN A PLOWED FIELD JUST ADJACENT TO THE ARPT BOUNDARY WITH NO FURTHER PROB. CALLBACK CONVERSATION WITH RPTR REVEALED FOLLOWING INFO. RPTR SAID THAT HE LANDED IN A PLOWED FIELD JUST OFF THE ARPT. THE ACFT WAS NOT DAMAGED IN ANY WAY DURING THE PRECAUTIONARY LNDG BUT THERE WAS SLIGHT DAMAGE TO ONE WING TIP AS THEY TAXIED THE ACFT BACK ONTO THE ARPT PROPERTY. NO PROBS FOUND WITH ENG.
