B - has tons of issues. First reversion and back are redundant. Also, 'That' is unnecessary.
C - reversion and back - redundancy.
E - Doesnt make sense.

Between A and D, D would be my choice. A alters intent.

A.

gradual reversion to raise corn and wheat or gradual reverion to the raising of corn and wheat. Is this an issue of future continuous?

A is the best choice.

Look at the highlighted portion...

In spite of continuing national trends toward increased consumption of specialty foods, agronomists in the Midwest foresee a gradual reversion to the raising of agricultural staples: feed corn and hard red wheat

The question here test parallelism.

Inspite of CONTINUING ..... reversion to the RAISING...

The other choice, do nto follow this, and some of them alter the meaning. Reversion back, reversion into are both wrong usage.

reversion has 'back' implied in it. So (B) and (C) are out
(D) and (E) has some problems, I think, with 'to raise' and 'into the raising'

SO (A) for me

carsen,
I am not able to understand your explanation of the parallelism. Am sorry may be I am not getting ur wavelength. Can you elaborate how the words 'continuing' and 'raising' form parallel portions of the sentence.

Thanks buddy
