Default fall planting/spraying

I am planning on planting oats in what was a soybean plot last year. right now the weeds are pretty well covering it. should i spray now and disc after it kills existing vegetation? how close to planting time should i do this process?

What I do is spray round up and kill everything. Once everything is dead, then I disc. Then I wait until the weeds come up again and give them another shot of round up. After they die I do my planting. Im not saying this is the best method, but after many years of experimenting this works best for me.

When do you want to plant the plot? RoundUp has little soil residual action, so pretty much after you spray it its safe to plant after a few days. Spray, allow a week or more to go by to really let the stuff die. Then hit it with a disc. May require a follow up application.

I sprayed on July 4 this year with generic glyphosate using 2 oz per gallon of water and we checked it on Sunday. Everything is brown, dead. It will be just right to disc and plant in late Sept. To me it is a plus to get it sprayed before the seeds mature, breaking the cycle. I had real bad crab grass and it took 3 years to get it under control.
