A 15 kilogram heroin bust in South Australia is believed to be the state's largest ever single seizure of the illicit drug.

Officers found the heroin haul along with one kilogram of cocaine on Tuesday at a property at Angle Park, in Adelaide's northwest.

Cash and equipment was seized from a second property, but no arrests have yet been made.

Police said the drugs were found packaged and showed signs of production by a large commercial enterprise.

"Police will continue to tackle organised crime groups, who are involved in the importation, manufacturing and supplying of illicit drugs," detective chief inspector Christina Buckley said.

"We are committed to the reduction of the harm caused by the use of illicit drugs in our community through law enforcement."
