"By installing special electric pumps"
Rest of the options has wrong modifiers.

answer D. because 'By installing special electric pumps' modifies farmers not farmer's houses because in the original sentence it sound like the houses are installing stuff which is absurd. in D farmers comes directly after its modifing phrase .
