Sir Edward John Russell FRS[1] (October 31, 1872-12 July 1965) was a British agriculturalist and director of Rothamsted Experimental Station from 1912 to 1943.[2][3] Driven by concerns over a lack of international information exchange about agriculture he initiated the Imperial Agricultural Bureaux, which later became the Commonwealth Agricultural Bureaux.

Russell was president of the British Association for 1948–1949.[4]
