WICHITA, Kan. — Kansas farmers are gearing up for the 2010 wheat harvest as the crop nears maturity in southern sections of the state.

The Kiowa area in Barber County is traditionally the first area in the state to begin harvest. The trade group Kansas Wheat says it is likely that this year will be no exception. Warm, windy days have hastened the maturity of a crop that so far looks free of disease.

Kiowa farmer Bob Schrock says he expects the harvest to begin there around June 9.
