I believe the latesting thinking on nitrogen fixers as green manure is you must cut them down before flowering/going to seed, otherwise the nitrogen gets used up by the plant. The organic matter of the green manures benefits/improves the structure of your soil but this is minimal unless you grow tons of it!
