About Rich farmers and poor farmers in the 8th century

In the 8th century, the disparity between rich farmers and poor farmers became significant. 
 
Some of poor farmers relinquished rice fields allocated by the government and left the places where they were registered.
 
Some others of them escaped from construction sites in Kyoto during their duties. After that some of them became wanderers or servants of local lords.
 
On the other hand, some of rich farmers moved to other places to expand their farming without the government permission.
 
Some others of them became monks or servants of nobles without permission, because they tried to avoid heavy tax burden on farmers.
 
At the end of the 8th century, many farmers defaulted in paying their taxes which they had to pay in special products of their districts such as silk, cloth.
 
The government's forces which consisted of many farmers got weakened.
 
These seriously influenced on the finance and the military power of the government.
