I just went with what sounds right and it is clearly B.

However, I believe producing acts as a verb here and we will require a noun 'production' . Anyways I will wait for an expert to comment.

"the producing of"--> its a complex gerund
the production of--> action noun

action noun is preferable hence B is correct.
