The seed hulls are tenacious and labor-intensive to remove. One tip is that when you are sowing the seed, you can first sow them under a compact layer of soil followed by a layer of loose soil, and then a thick soil layer again on top. It helps remove the hulls when the seed germinates, where you will be able to harvest the chard without the hulls. It works for beet too.
