That's maybe an original issue with landuse polygons. Once you go to
this level of details (fence), the border line between landuse's is
not a clear sharp line. As suggested by Shaun, once you add fences and
detach the farmland, you should also fill the gap created and make the
landuse=highway. People detaching landuse from road lines are most of
the time doing half of the job.

At least, new contributions shouldn't decrease the quality.
