The 'small farmer' is singular. So we can cancel out all options which uses 'they' to refer to the farmer.
So B,D,E are out.

We are left with A & C.
(A) planting the same crops as are planted on large farms will lead to economic disaster for the small farmer, who

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

A is the correct answer.

"Small farmer" is singular . So B , D and E can be elimnated because all these options use they to refer to the farmer.
Between A and C , A is better as it shows the cause effect relationship in proper order . Also C is awkward .

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 ==> CORRECT

(B) it will lead to economic disaster for the small farmer to plant the same crops as on the large farms; they ==> "they" lacks a clear precedent - Farmer here is singular so they cannot refer to farmer

(C) economic disaster will result from planting the same crops as large farms to the small farmer, who ==> Incorrect comparison, "planting crops" compared with "large farms" and that is illogical comparison

(D) economic disaster for the small farmer will result from planting the same crops as on the large farms; they ==> "they" lacks a clear precedent - Farmer here is singular so they cannot refer to farmer

(E) the small farmer planting the same crops as are planted on large farms will lead to economic disaster; they ==> "they" lacks a clear precedent - Farmer here is singular so they cannot refer to farmer

(A) has no error.
(B) Word "they" lacks a clear precedent - Farmer here is singular so they cannot refer to farmer
(C) Incorrect comparison, "planting crops" compared with "large farms" and that is illogical comparison
(D) Word "they" lacks a clear precedent - Farmer here is singular so they cannot refer to farmer
(E) The word "they" lacks a clear precedent - Farmer here is singular so they cannot refer to farmer. Hence (a).
