Will a Grass-type Pokemon when using the same grass stab move do more damage after a 50% Grass-type move boost from Grassy Terrain or from a sun boosted Growth (+2 stages in attack and sp attack)?

As you can see from the damage calculations, Growth boosted STAB attacks will do more damage than a grass type STAB move in Grassy Terrain. Growth will take a turn to use and doesn't heal you, but it can power up all of your attacking moves.
