Default Alfalfa in the Garlic Planting Hole ?

I have heard of using alfalfa pellets in the planting hole to improve clay soil and add nitrogen for young transplants. This got me thinking about buying organic pellets to improve a new area of clay soil for garlic.

Would the pellets break down soon enough to release nitrogen to the newly planted garlic? Is this a good use of resources for soil improvement? I have seen the organic variety of pellets selling for $20/ 40lbs from a feed store and it has to be ordered.
