With that said, remember: the preflood nitrogen application still sets the yield potential in these new varieties but the split application method is a very consistent method of applying nitrogen to rice.

Although arsenic can also occur in rice bran oil, it is believed to occur in much lower concentrations than in whole rice. One study of products in Japan found that rice bran oil contained only trace amounts of arsenic that were not of concern (0.03 mg/liter on average - equal to about 0.03 mg/kilogram) compared to much higher levels (0.14 to 0.28 mg/kilogram) found in products such as puffed rice, crackers and noodles (). These findings suggest that arsenic is not as easily taken up into the oily portion of rice as it is into other parts of the grain. It should also be kept in mind that rice bran oil is typically consumed in much smaller amounts than products made from whole rice products. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the World Health Organization have proposed a limit of 0.1 mg/kg of arsenic for rice bran oil () (which is about 3 times as high as that found in the Japanese study) although be aware that this standard does not currently apply to rice bran oil sold.
