It might help to disc first to chop up the sod. Sometimes when plowing, a long stretch of turned soil will want to fall back down. A long strip may fall back if it is all connected together by sod.

In this neck of the woods for sod ground we would hit it with roundup and plow it in the fall. Then in the spring we would drag it, fertilize and plant

Farming is not universal. We all have different soil, different moisture levels, different previous crop and different new crop to seed.

Different weed types to control, different budgets, different types of machinery sitting around.

Here I would plow in the fall, throw the disk away and get a nice field cultivator to smooth the dirt and prepare a seedbed in spring. We have too much clay to use a disk very much. Too wet. Winter is too long to try to get everything done in spring, our summers are too short.

Where you are maybe just disking twice will work.

There are 100 different variables. 100different ways of doing it too, and probably 63 of them will give you good results.

Typically one would plow first, then disk a few times over a couple week period to get a good seedbed.

This could be terrible tho if you have a tall matted mess of old hay/ weeds to start wil, and or wet clay soils.....

What do the neighbors do? Follow what they do in your own back yard.

Is the hay going into old sod, corn stalks or bean stubble? Unless you are redoing old sod plowing should not be needed. Disk stalks and stubble enough to break up the old crop, work in fertilizer and level the field. Moldboard plowing is expensive enough I would not plow if not needed.

I always use the disc to smooth up the mess I made with the plow! My father used to plow in the fall and then disc in the spring, but they don't make moldboard plows 30 feet wide so now they chisel plow.

What are you planting? If planting small grain or beans then disk and no plow. If planting corn then plow and disk.

Depends. If the ground is clean,or is grass,no disking needed. If there is a lot of trash/cornstalks,disking helps to cut them up,covering better.If the ground is ridged,disking helps level,making a better,more level plowing job.
