I will pick "E" on this. Adjective "costly" cleverly modifies nouns "irrigation and application of commercial fertilizer".
"that were" is also okay compare to "that was" of choice "D".

:btw whats the OA ?

E is correct as the statement has a comparison error ; a "Apple to oranges " comparison ( only like items to be compaed ), filtering which we are left with D or E . D is ruled out as we are deaing with a plural statement , so were should be used !!!! 8-)


Hope ithelps
