Planting a crop of Swiss chard after purple sprouting broccoli

I am new to crop rotation. My purple sprouting brocolli is nearly ready for picking and I am thinking about putting in Swiss chard bright lights after. Is this the right type of crop to rotate with or should I think of something else?

    Swiss chard is in the beet family so no problems in following brassicas as they have few pests or diseases in common.  Both need lots of nitrogen, so feed the soil with well-rotted manure or fish, blood and bone etc.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
