    Default "Silver river" sweetclover honey yield (lbs/ac)?

    I'm looking for plants to grow for nectar production. "Silver river" is a variety of annual sweetclover obtained very recently (2016) :

    On this topic, the user "bootsspurs" said Silver river "is Hubam on steroids" :

    Does anybody know the honey yield (lbs per acre) of this variety? The common biennal sweetclover is given for at least 100lbs/ac.

    I have some planted now, will not know results until flow is over. I am in Texas and have heard good reports from other bee keepers here in Texas.
