I THINK each channel can only hold a certain amount of foliage layers. In some maps, ive seen where the numChannels=13 and the other 2 are changed to 6

If you add more than two crop types than the fruit_density.gdm needs to be converted... I've played around with adding multi-fruit to many maps, but because I don't understand those numbers either, generally I just stick to two, in an effort to save the headache. I've spoken to many map makers, and no one really knows... seems like only the top guys have that one figured out. :p
