Archer Daniels Midland Co. spent $300,000 in the third quarter to lobby the federal government on renewable fuels like ethanol and on global trade issues, according to a disclosure report.

ADM's lobbying spending was15 percent higher than the $260,000 that it spent during the same quarter in 2010, but is down 46 percent from the $560,000 it spent during the second quarter of this year.
