improving soil and crop diversifying are still parallel and are verbs

Dolly,

Isn't "the strengthening the economy of the south through soil improvement and crop diversification" awkward, especially the "the...." part

Would go for D.
George seems to strengthen the economy of the south "by the means" of crop diversification & soil improvement.
D is parallel, The problem with C is "the strengthening the economy".

What's the OA?

(C) strengthening the economy of the South through soil improvement and crop diversification
(D) the strengthening of the economy of the South through improving soil and crop diversifying

Thanks seekmba !

strengthening || diversification (both are nouns)

Between B and C.
B has second "with" missing.
"with" soil improvement and "with" diversification of the crops

C it is.
