Preen is a brand of weed control products. There are different formulations. If you are referring to Preen Garden Weed Preventer, it is for control of broadleaf weeds and not grasses. It will not be effective for the Johnson grass.

A herbicide alone is not generally enough to control Johnson Grass.
Preen does list Johnson Grass as one of the targeted weeds.
Apply according to the packaging.
