Answer

Correct Option is stockpiling

Solution:The word highlighted in the given sentence is incorrect. The concerned sentence states that the demand for 'sustainable' agricultural systems has originated from the need to increase productivity to feed a growing global population while also conserving resources for future generations. Thus, we can infer that ‘stockpiling’ should replace the word given in bold to make the sentence correct and meaningful. Squandering means to waste (something, especially money or time) in a reckless and foolish manner.
(a) dissipating- to waste or fritter away (money, energy, or resources).
(b) manifesting- to show (a quality or feeling) by one's acts or appearance; demonstrate.
(c) condemning- to express complete disapproval of; censure.
(d) stockpiling- to accumulate a large stock of (goods or materials).
