An agricultural pesticide trade group spent $484,916 in the second quarter to lobby on the farm bill and other issues, according to a recent disclosure form.

CropLife America — whose 64 members include Chemtura Corp., Dow Chemical Co. and DuPont Co. — lobbied on legislation to label household products, tighten food safety and reform U.S. patent law.

That's down slightly from the $492,195 the group spent lobbying during the first quarter.

Besides Congress, the trade group lobbied the White House, Environmental Protection Agency, the Council on Environmental Quality, the Office of Management and Budget, the Departments of Justice, Interior, Homeland Security, Agriculture and Commerce according to the report filed July 19 with the House clerk's office.
