New hardy varieties of rice show promise of producing high yields without the costly requirements of irrigation and application of commercial fertilizer by earlier high-yielding varieties.

(A) requirements of irrigation and application of commercial fertilizer by earlier high-yielding varieties. This choice makes it sound as if
the earlier high yielding varieties applied the fertiliser

(B) requirements by earlier high-yielding varieties of application of commercial fertilizer and irrigation . This is too awkward, eliminate it

(C) requirements for application of commercial fertilizer and irrigation of earlier high-yielding varieties.

(D) application of commercial fertilizer and irrigation that was required by earlier high-yielding varieties. tricky but wrong beacuse it reads application[color]of commercial fertiliser and [color=red]application of irrigation. We can't apply irrigation
(E) irrigation and application of commercial fertilizer that were required by earlier high-yielding varieties. This shd be the right choice

I bet the anwer shd be E
