Which of the following most logically completes the argument below?
Davison River farmers are currently deciding between planting winter wheat this fall or
spring wheat next spring. Winter wheat and spring wheat are usually about equally
profitable. Because of new government restrictions on the use of Davison River water
for irrigation, per acre yields for winter wheat, though not for spring wheat, would be
much lower than average. Therefore, planting spring wheat will be more profitable than
planting winter wheat, since.
A. the smaller-than-average size of a winter wheat harvest this year would not be
compensated for by higher winter wheat prices
B. new crops of spring wheat must be planted earlier than the time at which standing
crops of winter wheat are ready to be harvested
C. the spring wheat that farmers in the Davison River region plant is well adapted to
the soil of the region
D. spring wheat has uses that are different from those of winter wheat
E. planting spring wheat is more profitable than planting certain other crops, such as
rye

Summary: As a result of the government restrictions, per acre yields for winter wheat will be much lower than average. This means that there will be a smaller than average harvest this year.

A. the smaller-than-average size of a winter wheat harvest this year would not be
compensated for by higher winter wheat prices
B. new crops of spring wheat must be planted earlier than the time at which standing
crops of winter wheat are ready to be harvested

C. the spring wheat that farmers in the Davison River region plant is well adapted to

D. spring wheat has uses that are different from those of winter wheat
Not enough information to infer anything.
E. planting spring wheat is more profitable than planting certain other crops, such as
