I will pick "E" on this. Adjective "costly" cleverly modifies nouns "irrigation and application of commercial fertilizer".
"that were" is also okay compare to "that was" of choice "D".

whats the OA ?

(A) requirements of irrigation and application of commercial fertilizer by earlier high-yielding varieties

(B) requirements by earlier high-yielding varieties of application of commercial fertilizer and irrigation

(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

(E) irrigation and application of commercial fertilizer that were required by earlier high-yielding varieties

E is correct as the statement has a comparison error ; a "Apple to oranges " comparison ( only like items to be compaed ), filtering which we are left with D or E . D is ruled out as we are deaing with a plural statement , so were should be used !!!!

Hope ithelps
