I have a plot of WI PowerPlant that done awesome this year and still looks great. How long do I wait before getting rid of it and start on the fall planting. Also, how is the best way to get rid of it? Bush-hog and disc into soil or haul it off?

If at all possible leave it and put your fall plot somewhere else.

You can just wait til it starts drying down and broadcast wheat directly into it.

One way to work a PowerPlant patch is to bush hog paths in it and plant your Fall crop in those paths. OF course the PP will die with the 1st frost but it'll still stand tall and give cover and that cover will make deer feel more secure using your plot in daylight hours. I've done this 2 or 3 years in the past.
