Read  the  source  given  below  and  answer the questions  by  choosing  the  most appropriate option:

There  has  been  a  gradual  shift  from  cultivation of  food  crops  to  cultivation  of  fruits, vegetables, oil-seeds and industrial crops. This has led to the reduction in net sown area under  cereals  and  pulses.  With  the  growing  population  of  India,  the  declining  food production puts a big question mark over the country’s future food security.The  competition  for  land  between  non-agricultural  uses  such  as  housing  etc.  and agriculture  has  resulted  in  reduction  in  the  net  sown  area.  The  productivity  of  land  has started  showing  a  declining  trend.  Fertilisers,  pesticides  and  insecticides,  which  once showed dramatic results, are now being held responsible for degrading the soils. Periodic scarcity  of  water  has   led  to  reduction   in  area  under   irrigation.Inefficient  water management has led to water logging and salinity.

‘Fertilisers, pesticides and insecticides, which once showed dramatic results, are now being held responsible for degrading the soil.’
