The main purpose of the study was to determine the time spent and academic study behavior of the students of Agrotechnology Discipline of Khulna University, Khulna-9208, Bangladesh. A number of activities were considered to measure the time spent by the students. Data were collected from randomly selected fifty students of five batches (2010-2014) of Agrotechnology Discipline, Khulna University.

The respondent students spent their time in eleven activities such as religious activities, academic learning, personal learning, games/sports, personal activities (sleeping, bathing, taking meal), chatting/gossiping with friends, private tuition, interaction with senior and/or junior, watching TV, internet browsing and mobile talking to different extent. Among the eleven activities, the respondent students preferred to spent highest time (7.827 hours) in personal activities followed by academic study (7.705 hours) which includes residential hall room, classroom, library and group studies.
