    Reversion + noun or verb???

    In spite of continuing national trends toward increased consumption of specialty foods, agronomists in the Midwest foresee a gradual reversion to the raising of agricultural staples: feed corn and hard red wheat.

    Hi All,

    Should "revervsion" be followed by a noun or a verb? or Is it illogical to use "raise" (change the order of the events) in the second sentence?


    Thanks.
