Default Innoculant Needed for Silver River Sweetclover?

I have about 3lbs of Silver River Sweetclover left over from last fall. I was planning on planting it in two weeks to see what happens but I wanted to see if I needed to add an innoculant to the seeds prior to planting. Please let me know when y’all get the chance. Thanks!

If you inoculated when you planted it last year you probably don't need it this year. The rhizobia bacteria will still be present in the field.

It will grow fine without it but it won't be able to fix nitrogen unless the bacteria is in the soil. I'm not familiar with sweetclover....can it withstand the heat of summer?
