We show that the conjectural criterion of p-incompressibility for products of projective homogeneous varieties in terms of the factors, previously known in a few special cases only, holds in general. We identify the properties of projective homogeneous varieties actually needed for the proof to go through. For instance, generically split (non-homogeneous) varieties also satisfy these properties.
