A is best
B and C are redundant with "reversion back"
D) "a reversion to + noun" is proper form
E) reversion "into" is not right

(A) and (D) are the contenders.

(D) is out for not maintaining the paralellism.
(A) is the best.

a gradual reversion to + noun/noun phrase

raise aggricultural staples is a clause

+1 A

I think that D is wrong because it changes the meaning.
It seems that they foresee IN ORDER TO raise something. The idea of purpose is not correct here.

Don't forget to analyze the MEANING in the sentences. It is critical now with the new changes in the exam.

Yes, I agree with metallicafan that I chose this correct one based on the meaning. "to" in choice D expresses the purpose seems not suitable in this setence.
