Abstract: We show that for a surjective, separable morphism $f$ of smooth projective varieties over a field of positive characteristic such that $f_* \mathcal {O}_X \cong \mathcal {O}_Y$ subadditivity of Kodaira dimension holds, provided the base is of general type and the Hasse-Witt matrix of the geometric general fiber is not nilpotent.
