If you have any kind of clay I would sure plow now and disc it down yet this fall. I would think you could loose a lot of moisture plowing in the spring. The opposite problem might be having the ground too wet for spring plowing. Oats need to go in pretty early so getting the ground in decent shape now will be beneficial. I grow some oats for hay each spring and like to just lightly work the ground once or twice prior to sowing. Here in Kansas we like to have oats in the ground by the middle of March.

Why disk it now? Disking just packs the soil and creates more wind erosion with the smooth field. Leave it rough and save more snow.

In our clay ground it causes less compaction by disking in the fall when it is dry compared to trying to work it down in February when it is still wet underneath.

Then why not use a field cultivator, instead of a disk, which causes compaction?
