you need to see what changes you have made to the field. to modify a field with editor you have to reposition all the corners in the new positions, then you have to modify the farmland so that the modified field
re-enter the former farmland area. save exit and start the game

Also it won't work in an existing savegame. To see the changes you'll need to start a new save.

Once you can see the edited field works as you want in a new save, back up your old save, then take the relevant GDM file(s) from your edited map folder (eg FarmingSimulator2022\mods\FS22_Calmsden\maps\data\densityMap_fruits.gdm) and replace the corresponding file in your savegame folder - it will reset the whole map back to the state of the modmap.

I've not tried the above with FS22 yet but it should work.
