A Solution to Help with Stress Tolerance
BioBuild® C-Green Amino + II is a seaweed extract fortified with organic acids in combination with N-amino acids + a soil penetrating agent to help any plant mitigate stress. C-Green Amino + II can be used in corn, soybeans, wheat, alfalfa and veggies as in-furrow/2×2 starter, transplant water solution or foliar application with crop protection products, fertilizer, or other biological products. We recommend applying C-Green Amino + II just prior to a stress event or immediately following the event for best activity and faster recovery.
Why C-Green Amino + II?
C-Green Amino + II provides stress mitigation to the plant later in the season and under hot and dry or cool and wet conditions. Formulated for in-furrow, 2×2 and foliar applications, this product can be mixed with crop protection, fertilizer or other biological products when applied as a foliar application. C-Green Amino + II includes a soil penetrating agent to keep the seaweed extract, organic acids and amino acids in the soil profile available to the plant without losing them through the soil with water leachate. The seaweed extracts in C-Green Amino + II are loaded with natural plant-growth hormones such as auxins and cytokinins and fortified with organic acids with N-amino acids in one application. Organic acids work even better when combined with seaweed extracts; they hold onto plant-growth hormones in an exchangeable form to amplify their effects on plants.
What are the benefits of Amino Acids?
Plants have the capacity to biosynthesize all the amino acids required from nitrogen, carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen. The biosynthesis of amino acids is complex and energy consuming. As such, the application of amino acids allows the plant to save energy on this process which can be dedicated to improving plant development during critical growth stages or times of stress.
Amino acids are fundamental to a plant for protein synthesis. Naturally produced N-amino acids, found in C-Green Amino+ II, are synthesized by the plant at specific phases of development. These phases include nitrogen mobilization in germinating seeds, nitrogen recycling in vegetative cells in response to stress and nitrogen remobilization during seed embryogenesis. The supplement of amino acids in essential quantities can improve the overall quality of crops leading to improved yield potential.
C-Green Amino + II application works best in-furrow or in transplant water solutions. The application use-rate should be increased when applied away from the seed or roots in a below ground application. C-Green Amino + II should be applied at the V3-V5 stage in corn and/or later in beans, but consult with your Sunrise Agronomy Solutions Advisor for final application timing.

BioBuild® and StandUp® products work together to improve crop nutrition & yield potential. BioBuild N198 w/MIC Nitrogen Management Aid combines a select group of concentrated beneficial microbes with an organic food source applied as a nitrogen management aid for enhanced early growth, vigor and to develop a larger root mass in a corn crop. StandUp Fertizol® Zn increases the length of time zinc is available to the plant. It allows zinc, phosphorus and other micronutrients already present in the soil to be more available for plant uptake.
In a 2-year average BioBuild N198 w/MIC Nitrogen Management Aid had a +3.7 bushel advantage for corn. Find more information on the BioBuild N198 w/MIC Nitrogen Management Aid sell sheet.
In a 3-year average StandUp Fertizol Zn had a +3.8 bushel advantage for corn and a +2.7 bushel advantage for soybeans. Find more information on the StandUp Fertizol Zn sell sheet.

Stay Ahead of Weather Stress and Yield Loss With the Right Crop Nutrients
Farmers trying to push corn and soybean yields to the max should consider the impact of crop stress and develop a plan to minimize its effects. In the spring, cool, wet weather limits germination, plant stands and can lead to poor nodulation in soybeans. During growth, prolonged periods of heat can lead to moisture loss in the soil causing stress to the crop. In fact, just four consecutive days of hot, dry weather could reduce corn yields by 5-10%.
By the time farmers spot leaf rolling in their corn crop or flipped leaves in their soybeans, it could be too late to reverse the damage.
One way to stay ahead of unpredictable weather and stress is with PCT | Sunrise® BioBuild™ C-Green. C-Green is a rich mix of naturally occurring growth stimulators – including seaweed extract, organic acids and trace minerals – that encourage development of large, vigorous root systems. This helps ensures proper nutrient uptake during early-season growth.
Later in the season, it also benefits crops during critical reproduction stages by promoting lateral branching, flower formation, flower retention and pod development in soybeans. In corn, C-Green stimulates pollen shed, tube formation and while keeping silk tubes viable. Ensuring plants are in peak health during this time can translate to more bushels at harvest.
For best results, C-Green can be used in-furrow as an on-seed starter, 2×2 and/or applied as a foliar during V3-R1 (corn) and V3- R2 (soybeans) at least two weeks prior to a stress event. Since Mother Nature is unpredictable, using it as a preventative provides a low cost “insurance policy” to keep crops healthy and on track for high yield potential.
