Hi

Option A looks the best one.

A) it comepares the crops in small and big farms correctly and uses who to indroduce a subordinate clause refering to the farmer to give more relevant and essential information.

a semi-colon is needed when there are 2 distinct ideas to be presented . it is not the case here , so (b) (d) and (e) are out

(c) compares crops to large farms

If my explanations fall short anywhere , pls correct or add

According to Booker T. Whatley’s recent analysis, planting the same crops as are planted on large farms will lead to economic disaster for the small farmer, who should plan a succession of high-value crops that will provide a year-round cash flow.

(A) planting the same crops as are planted on large farms will lead to economic disaster for the small farmer, who

=====>Best choice.

(B) it will lead to economic disaster for the small farmer to plant the same crops as on the large farms; they

=====>"they" have no clear referent and "it" refers to "recent analysis". Recent analysis cannot lead to disaster.

(C) economic disaster will result from planting the same crops as large farms to the small farmer, who

=====>Comparing apples and oranges.

(D) economic disaster for the small farmer will result from planting the same crops as on the large farms; they

=====>"they" have no clear referent. Also this is passive.

(E) the small farmer planting the same crops as are planted on large farms will lead to economic disaster; they

=====>"they" have no clear referent. Also, its not parallel

Mahesh, a small request, please underline the part that need to be checked or corrected.

definitely A.
"planting..." is the most suitable to be the subject of the sentence.
