Except as otherwise specifically provided in this article, no ordinance or regulation of any political subdivision or home rule municipality may prohibit or in any way attempt to regulate any matter relating to the registration, labeling, sale, storage, transportation, distribution, notification of use or use of seeds, if any of these ordinances, laws or rules are in conflict with this chapter.
