Dave Delhotal

Dave Delhotal is part of a fifth generation corn and soybean farm located in northern Illinois. The Delhotal family’s mission is to practice the best land stewardship possible in order to leave the land in better condition than what they found it in.

Dave continues to embrace new technology that not only helps him be more efficient but also helps him take better care of the land.
